The "Aux Roches" nature reserve, located in Chokier, covers an area of 67,03 acres and is one of the jewels of the natural and landscape heritage of the commune of Flémalle and the Liège Meuse.
About fifteen years ago, the nature protection association, Natagora, signed an agreement with the commune of Flémalle concerning the creation of a nature reserve in Chokier.
The region's former limestone quarries provide a refuge for many animal and plant species, some of which are very scarce, such as certain Mediterranean plants only to be encountered here in the Liège basin, at their northern limit of dispersal...
From mid-July to mid-November you can also watch Blackfaces Scottish sheep.
