It is possible to have a picnic there. Spaces are provided for this purpose outside the reception chalet and on the outdoor terrace. In the chalet, vending machines offer drinks and snacks during opening hours.
Several animals frequent the ecological center, in addition to the many birds which attract a large number of bird watchers. The possibility of seeing an animal is fortuitous, but almost guaranteed, which makes each visit to the ecological center unique.
