As for the rest, there's the aptly-named Maison des Abers. Push open the doors of this former farm to learn all you can. You'll find an educational museography, a children's play area and art exhibitions. The shellfish collection and seawater aquarium will give you an idea of the fauna and flora specific to the Abers. In summer, the association offers a wide range of nature and heritage outings, usually during the day, sometimes in the evening, in the form of guided walks, workshops or evenings out. Go on a dune safari... Look at plankton under a microscope... Learn how to cook seaweed... The Maison des Abers also lends out "Get Outdoors" backpacks, packed with fun activities for everyone, so you can explore the area on your own.
