Description - Forest Botanical Trail of the Bois de Châtel
Located in the Bois de Châtel on the heights of Avenches, the Botanical Trail invites the walker to discover different forest species.
The Bois de Châtel has been enriched with a forest botanical trail allowing walkers and interested people to get to know the different forest species. Who would have thought that our forest offers such a variety? In fact, some 60 trees, all of different species, have been given a plaque with their names in French, Latin and German. From then on, the walk goes from discovery to discovery, while enjoying the forest atmosphere.
Each listed tree is flanked by a post bearing the nameplate, which also contains a QR code that can be read with an Android and IOS compatible mobile phone. Reading this code takes you to the Wikipedia website, which provides a wealth of information on the species of the tree, the family to which it belongs, its leaves or needles, its fruit, etc.
Two do-it-yourself brochures are also available in pdf.
