SAINT-SULPICE-DE-GRIMBOUVILLE

Risle Maritime Marsh

In the northwest of the Eure, explore a unique nature site and discover its numerous environmental features. The wet and spongy ground of the peat bog of the Risle Maritime river, a site of national importance, is home to particular animals and plants: some plants and insects are rare and thus protected, such as the southern damselfly. If you wake up early, you might also catch sight of little egrets, herons, common kingfishers, common reed buntings and some storks. This wetland ecosystem is more precisely a peat bog. Peat, consisting mainly of black decayed plant matter, can only develop in certain climate and natural conditions: that's why peat bogs are rare in France. Access from Saint-Sulpice-de-Grimbouville to the peat bog. You can explore the site thanks to the Eel Path or the tours and activities organised by the Boucles de la Seine Normande Regional Natural Park.
