Flowers (in their natural habitat)
Outing at St. Lawrence mixed forest!
Let’s explore our nature! We’ll take a walk with our budding botanists to observe Quebec’s spring flowers, including the bloodroot (used by Native Americans as makeup) and discover the very distinctive smell (which attracts flies) of the red trillium. The use of a small observation guide will further enrich our exploration. Keep going! Breathe in that fresh air!
