Field Trips
Many of our field trips are
organized for birdwatchers

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23,  2015

We have often visited this beautiful spot in sping, so this will be an opportunity to hunt for wildflowers and observe the many birds – and some animals and frogs – which can be seen there in the summer.

We will be walking in the Marguerite d’Youville Wildlife Sanctuary where there are many trails, some stretching across the island to a wide view onto Lac St-Louis. On the whole, the island is flat and therefore it may be wet in areas around the marsh.

There are many pleasant spots where we can enjoy a picnic lunch; also, food will be available in the nearby café where we’ve enjoyed their famous apple pie at the end of past trips. The Welcome Centre provides the usual facilities plus a lounge.
