Le Grand Montauban: territory with remarkable biodiversity

a mosaic of unspoiled landscapes

At a time when the rate of species disappearance is accelerating to the point that scientists are evoking a sixth great extinction, nature and biodiversity are now at the heart of environmental issues and must be integrated into every urbanization project.

The Grand Montauban has a remarkable biodiversity, but eroded and threatened. This common heritage deserves to be better known by all, safeguarded and protected, restored and enhanced, because it is a source of well-being, innovation, new activities and sustainable jobs.

Much more than a simple postcard “decor”, our nature can be discovered, admired, listened to … all year round, alone or with family, through unique and unforgettable experiences.

Montauban between city and nature

In Montauban, the main reservoirs of biodiversity are located to the south-east of the city and at the level of Tarn and Tescou. Ecological corridors cross the city northwest to reach other reservoirs outside its limits.

An educational booklet
