Geocache Description:

Voici une série de 23 caches de bienvenue "Welcome" sur le territoire du Pays de Montmédy. Suivez-moi et découvrez l'histoire de chacune de ces communes !
Faites attention, cache en bord de route, soyez discrets !

Velosnes, accueille les chauves-souris !
C’est en empruntant le sentier botanique partant de Velosnes jusqu’au site de la Ramonette, que vous apprécierez toute la richesse de son patrimoine naturel.
La pelouse calcaire de Velosnes est un site naturel protégé et géré par le Conservatoire des Sites Lorrains. Ici, des espèces végétales et animales rares et remarquables ont pu être préservées et ont parfois trouvé d’insolites refuges comme cette colonie de 70 chauve-souris qui a investi les vestiges d’un fort de la ligne Maginot.
Vous remarquerez ici et là quelques bas-reliefs comme un cadran solaire, trois ancres sur une porte charretière et différents détails d’architecture typique de maisons de paysans et d’ouvriers.

The best way to really see how beautiful the countryside is around here is to take the «green path» out of Velosnes and head to la Ramonette.
The chalk grassland at Velosnes is a protected natural site managed by the local Conservation Trust. They have managed to preserve some remarkable rare flora and fauna here – some of which have discovered unusual places to live, such as the colony of 70 bats who’ve made a home out of a former Maginot Line fort.
The village’s modest buildings show their heritage as the homes of factory workers and farm labourers but every so often you will come across some architectural flourish such as a sun dial, three anchors on a rough-hewn door and the typical construction features of farmworkers’ houses.
