Nature festival in Île-de-France

Guided tours, meetings, workshops, treasure hunts …: more than 170 free activities give you the opportunity to (rediscover) the richness of the Ile-de-France natural heritage from 18 to 22 May 2022. Must be geolocated on a map.

Arranged in Île-de-France as everywhere in France from 18 to 22 May 2022, the Fête de la nature invites, through free activities, to be amazed by nature 2 steps from home, and to meet women and men “passionate by nature”.

This 16th edition has no particular theme: in 2022, nature will be celebrated through all themes related to living things!

Geolocate events in Île-de-France on an online map
