Solon has an in-depth knowledge of ecosystems in general, and of the Walloon forest ecosystem in particular. The knowledge acquired is disseminated for the purposes of maintaining, protecting and improving the management of this heritage.
In practice, Solon essentially sees itself as a link, often the only link, between various groups affected by forest management (foresters, hunters, owners and naturalists) and as an intermediary when it comes to the less well informed general public.
The main initiatives carried out since the non-profit making association was set up include:
- animal population monitoring initiatives
- initiatives to support biotopes
- illustrating Walloon's forest heritage
- involvement in producing films, documentaries, books and exhibitions
- forest guidance
- symposiums, conferences and various courses (nature guides, gamekeepers, etc.)
