Bassin de Batelage: a blue and green ecological corridor full of life

17/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

The Bassin de Biestebroeck is well known to the countless visitors who walk along its verdant embankments and, of course, to the handful of houseboat owners who have set up their homes on its calm waters. This nature walk will involve observing various land and water-based plants and animals. While some spend their entire lives there, such as the plants, others only pass through, like the birds. However, they are all able to fulfil their specific needs: housing for some, food for others. This guided tour will give you an opportunity to learn about the often unexpected wealth of flora and fauna to be found in the area. And perhaps surprise you that this widened section of the canal is able to offer an environment so favourable to wildlife in the heart of the capital!

In cooperation with the Anderlecht municipal administration.
