42 km to biodiversity marathon
This operation marks the symbolic start of the biodiversity marathon. This call for projects launched by Métropole de Lyon aims to plant 42 km of hedges and vegetation along the banks of waterways and create 42 ponds in the area by 2026. The aim is to enhance what is known as the “turquoise fabric”, a natural environment that offers a favorable habitat for species that divide their life cycle between aquatic, moist and dry environments such as amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders) and certain insects (blackflies and water bugs).
This initiative is available to all private individuals (individuals, farmers, companies, etc.) and public. You will find all the information to present a project at grandlyon.com.
Métropole supports the greening of condominiums
Planting trees has many benefits: it refreshes the city, improves air quality and the living environment, serves as a shelter for insects, etc. This is why Metropolis Lyon supports various initiatives that go in this direction. In particular, it can finance part of the tree planting projects in private owner-occupied apartments.
