The exhibition will include three main sections: a dozen panels telling the story of the construction of the Écrins refuges with the use of wood as a common thread, the tools used by the craftsmen and their actions and finally, a xylotheque to visualize and manipulate the different local species in the Écrins territory.

The exhibition is open to everyone and entry is completely free. The exhibition will be held upstairs at the Maison du Parc National des Ecrins de Vallouise-Pelvoux from June 15 to the end of November. Guided tours of the exhibition by wood professionals are planned, as well as conferences on the theme on July 25, and August 1, 8, 15 at 4:30 p.m.
