The Provence Model Forest has organized the Week-End du Chêne-Liège (Cork Oak Weekend), an event that has reached its 6th edition and will be held on 8-9 October 2022 at the Domaine de Baudouvin (La Valette -du-Var, France). The event, which attracts between 2,000 and 4,000 people every year, aims to highlight the cork oak sector and its interest in biodiversity.
The cork oak forest (= a cork forest) is in fact recognized as a habitat of community interest due to the richness of biodiversity and its interest in the face of fires. But the cork oak is also environment, territory, forest, history, craftsmanship and above all wood, which the Provence Model Forest defends and highlights through various enhancement activities. For this reason, it has been organizing this event for 6 years, and this year it will be also an opportunity to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the International Model Forest Network.
It will be two days full of activities!
