Located just 60 km from Montreal, this rocky 605 hectare (1,496 ac.) reserve is nestled in the heart of the Piedmont and Prévost Escarpments of the Laurentians — one of the region’s emblematic natural areas. Balancing conservation and public access, this area offers stunning trail systems up to 15 km long and provides habitat for more than 80% of Quebec’s birds of prey! Other flora and fauna spotted on the property include the rare purple clematis and Holboell’s rockcress, Canada warbler and the endangered butternut tree.What you will be doing
