Good behaviors to discover narcissus

Favor the observation of narcissus and the purchase of bouquets (stands in front of farms, in villages and stations).

Do not trample or lie down in the narcissus meadows.

Do not uproot the narcissus or pick them with the leaves.

Limit yourself to a handful of narcissus per person and do not pick them from private properties.

Adapt picking to the abundance of flowers present and to the conditions (give up when narcissi are scarce or when the ground is muddy)

The observation of narcissus often coincides with sensitive areas and periods for wildlife, please keep dogs on a leash and stay on the trails.

Respect the specific regulations of protected areas.

Take away your waste.  - Gruyère Pays d'Enhaut Regional Nature Park.
