We are looking for partners who offer a nature tourist destination / who are a bird-watching destination, or partners who wish to develop such a destination.
The LAG gathers 6 rural communities and is known as the “thousand ponds region”. It is a Natura 2000 area, and we aimed to be labelled as a RAMSAR site. Fish production is highly developed and highlighted with special events (Journées Poissons de Dombes : “Dombes fish days” with lots of activities about traditional fishing, local fish meals in restaurants, discovery of fish products like fish leather…) . Now we would like to expand the offer by promoting other natural resources.
