Ile du Moine (Sorel-Tracy)

Located less than 10 km north east of Sorel-Tracy, this 500 hectare (1,235 ac.) island is made up of open meadows, riparian marshes and inland swamps. These landscapes provide habitat for a variety of bird species, including the barn swallow, bobolink, Nelson’s sparrow, short-billed wren, short-eared owl and least bittern.
