Parc naturel régional du Doubs
The Doubs Regional Nature Park extends over more than 40 kilometres in the cantons of Jura, Neuchatel and Bern and includes 16 communities. Recognized by the federal authorities as a regional nature park of national importance, the Parc du Doubs is intended to ensure the preservation and sustainable development of its territory with regard to environment, patrimony and population.
The regional nature parks of national importance recognized by the Swiss confederation are best known for their scenic beauty, rich biodiversity and valuable cultural assets. The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and the involved cantons, member municipalities and private foundations provide financial support for these nature parks.
Doubs Nature Park
The measures taken by the Doubs Nature Park in close collaboration with its public and private partners address three fundamental goals: preserving and enhancing nature and the landscape, supporting sustainable economic activities, and promoting awareness and education about sustainable development. Wide-ranging and dynamic initiatives have ensued, such as the environmental awareness program "Graines de chercheurs" (planting the seeds of research), identification and revitalization of sources, enhancing the population of Fritillaria meleagris, and labelling of regional products.
