Wetland in Mauvoisin
Warning: Unsecured hours
This site is protected and listed in the Federal Inventory of Fens of National Importance (No. 1811).
Fens consist of a diverse patchwork of natural wetland habitats (including wet meadows and sedge meadows).

Numerous species of flora and fauna, many of which are threatened, live interdependently in this environment.
Notable species: Marsh trefoil (Menyanthes trifoliata) and common frog (Rana temporaria
