About Pointe de Saint-Vallier (Berthier-sur-Mer)

This 67 hectare (167 ac.) property is located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, on the outskirts of Saint-Vallier and Berthier-sur-Mer, and approximately 50 km east of Quebec City. It is a remarkable natural area offering spectacular views of Cap Tourmente, Île d’Orléans and the St. Lawrence River Islands. This site highlights the exceptional rural and aquatic landscape of this region where the river expands and the St. Lawrence lowlands lie between the Appalachian and Laurentian mountains, providing habitat for species like the striped bass, American eel, bank swallow, and the endangered monarch butterfly and butternut tree.

What you will be doing

You will collect garbage making the site clean and safe for wildlife. You will join a sub-group to tackle one section of the site. This activity requires some physical fitness, ability to walk about 1.5 km, bend down to pick up and lift garbage, and carry full garbage bags.

Why you will love it

You will enjoy a day on the trails and discover the beautiful landscape and impressive view of the capes and islands of the St. Lawrence River.
