Free nature discovery activities

During spring, families are expected at the centre écologique Fernand-Seguin for a nature discovery activity.

In the spring, the centre écologique Fernand-Seguin dons its finery and dazzles hikers: nature awakens and the spring flowers that carpet the ground create completely magical landscapes!

From May 7 to 29, 2022, Héritage Saint-Bernard naturalist guides present every weekend to offer nature discovery activities to families. Activities run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and are offered free of charge: no reservations required, canceled in case of very bad weather.


May 7-8 and 14-15, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

This spring, native plants are dazzling! In addition to their remarkable colours, smells and shapes, the spring flora plays an important ecological role. For the occasion, families are invited to take the most beautiful pictures of the specimens observed while hiking (staying on the marked trails of course!). In addition, as part of an activity of sowing native plants, participants will take part in the protection of biodiversity.


May 21-22 and 28-29, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

En plus d’être essentiels au maintien de la biodiversité, les insectes et autres arthropodes fascinants par leurs couleurs et leur grande capacité d’adaptation dans la nature. Pots, loupes et filets à la main, petits et grands participeront à la chasse aux bestioles et apprendront à mieux les identifier pour en apprécier la valeur! Le matériel est fourni pour l’activité.

To extend the visit, families are invited to bring their lunch and enjoy the indoor and outdoor facilities of the ecological centre.
At all times, the reception chalet is open between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.*.

Héritage Saint-Bernard would like to thank the City of Châteauguay for making access to the site and the activities possible free of charge for everyone.
