The farm has an exceptional situation in Luxembourg as it is integrated in several special conservation areas for natural habitats of wild fauna and flora and in the sanitary protection area of the Haute-Sûre lake.

The FNEL contributes to the ecological conservation of this wonderful site through environmental education in a scouting spirit.

In order to reduce the consumption of fuel oil at the Misère Farm considerably, the FNEL Foundation commissioned a company to carry out major alterations to the heating system in 2018. Solar thermal energy will now be used to heat the hot water for the showers. A heat exchanger will allow some of the energy from the ventilation system in the sanitary blocks to be recovered and a new central heating control system will allow the stored energy to be used wisely. The Ministry of Family and Integration has agreed to provide financial support for this project.
