Regional Natural Park of Verdon, the Guardian of the Temple

The Verdon Regional Nature Park, created on March 3, 1997, has for main vocation as any Regional Natural Park, to ensure that the economic development of its territory is harmonized with the conservation and the enhancement of its natural heritage. Unlike National Nature Parks which are protected areas of human activity.

Surrounded by landscapes reaching more than 1,800 meters of altitude, the Verdon regional natural park, was constituted around the catchment of the river: the Verdon. It includes 7 landscapes; Valensole plateau, L’Artuby, Lakes and Mountains, Lake Sainte Croix, Gorges du Verdon, The low Gorges du Verdon and The hills of Haut Var.

In addition to the 46 member municipalities, the departmental councils of Hautes Alpes and Var and the regional council of Provence Alpes Cotes d’Azur are added. Together, they constitute the Mixed Syndicate. Each participant of the Syndicat mixte is represented by a delegate who sits on the Union Committee, it is the decision-making body of the Park. To put its decisions into action, the Verdon Regional Nature Park has created a team of 38 agents with multiple and varied skills.

The Regional Natural Park of Verdon relies on a charter formalizing its project and defining its main orientations. It is structured in 4 different chapters;

-Transmission of the heritages – The man at the heart of the project – Sustainable valorization of the resources – Experimentation of new relations between the communes

With the economy of the region evolving towards an ever more dominant tourist activity, the Verdon Regional Nature Park also relies on the professional guides of the Verdon to inform their large clientele about the fragility of the natural heritage discovered during whitewater activities. .
