Héritage Laurentien

Winter Biodiversity Kiosk and Carpet Sled Loans

On Friday, March 4, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., come and discover part of Héritage Laurentien’s collection of skulls and furs, to learn about the animals in the area and discover how wildlife adapts to winter. Who hibernates? Who has migrated south? Who stays active all winter? How do animals find food and protect themselves from the cold? This three-hour activity, open to all, will be guided by biologist-naturalists who will share with you the secrets of the animals that live in the area.

  • Registration is not required.
  • A limited number of carpet sleds are available.
  • Public washrooms are located at 7770 boulevard LaSalle.
  • Wear appropriate clothing for the activity. The waterfront area is windy, so wind-proof clothes and an extra layer of clothing are a must. Warm, moisture-wicking socks (e.g., merino wool), rather than cotton, can greatly improve your comfort. Gloves, a scarf and a tuque are highly recommended. Snowshoes fit better on boots with flat heels.
