The “Sagne” OF THE Baysses

A thematic marked path : a 1km circuit. Peatland and other humid zones are numerous in the “Monts de Lacaune”. In these permanent soaked soils, plants like “sphaignes (sphagnum)” adapt themselves for settling. Sentier thématique balisé : boucle découverte de 1 km, variante de la Montéliote. Les tourbières et autres zones humides sont nombreuses dans les monts de Lacaune. Dans ces sols constamment gorgés d’eau, des végétaux comme les sphaignes s’adaptent et s’installent. Without oxygen, bacteria and fungi can no longer break out the organic matter that stacks up and produces the peat.
