Biodiversity at the PASS – Many activities for your children

This summer, it is the theme of biodiversity that will be the focus of the PASS

During these summer holidays, the Pass organisers offer an inspiring theme for all ages: biodiversity.

Come on board for 12,000 m2 of activities: exhibitions, animations, a picture palace, 3,000 m2 of playgrounds, and a brand new activity: an Escape Game.

Animations on the garden side


In the Pass Garden, the exploration of biodiversity will be developed through 3 main themes: food, matter, and biomimicry. Observing insects, identifying smells, using natural elements to create colour… an ideal family activity to connect with nature.

The living pond

With the naturalist’s notebook in hand, the visitor plunges into the secrets of the pond and its ecosystem. Observation and identification of insects, animals, and plants. Water quality analysis (pH and nitrate). A pond is a real place of life and reproduction for a diversified, abundant, and increasingly rare flora and fauna.

The mini potager

A mini vegetable garden, to be grown by little hands that will quickly become experts, it takes place in the flowered garden of the Pass. Choose and observe your seeds, identify the soil that corresponds to them and discover who grows when and with whom. This is the objective proposed during this workshop, a vegetable garden to take away and grow at home because having a green thumb is finally a child’s play.

Animations on the courtyard side

Insect Hotels

After having chosen the insect that will live in his garden, the visitor is invited to draw on the computer the personalized shelter of his future guest. He will produce his hotel in the Pass pixel factory using a laser cutter. After assembling the parts, the shelter is ready to welcome the new neighbours!

Autonomous exploration game

This will allow families to discover and understand a link with nature on each of our exhibitions. This animation will be accessible in rainy weather.

This summer at the Pass, you can take home souvenirs, a mini vegetable garden, an insect hotel, drawings from plants… The “family” activities are offered free of charge, depending on the number of places available. In exceptional cases, these will be subject to registration. Places are limited.

All year-round, the Pass helps to maintain biodiversity with its 10,000 m2 of flowering meadows, the slag heap ecosystem, the biodiversity garden, and its many activities.
