Enjoy Winter at the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area

This winter, Environment Canada’s Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area (NWA) invites you to come on weekends until March 9, 2013, or during the spring break from March 3 to 7. Discover the NWA and enjoy some winter fun in this area dedicated to biodiversity conservation, while you learn the basics or increase your knowledge.
Take a stroll along a 6-km hiking trail and observe the over 30 species of birds that frequent the feeding stations. The NWA is the ideal place for the uninitiated to learn a little more about migratory bird conservation, species at risk and their habitats. Visiting the NWA is one big adventure; there is so much to learn about nature in this extensive area.
If visitors want to get to know this environment better, they can participate in a birdwatching project. During these bird watching hikes, the different types of species and their numbers will be tallied and the data collected will be added to Project FeederWatch run by Bird Studies Canada. This is a great way to participate in research on bird populations. In the winter of 2013, Black-capped Chickadees, Common Redpolls and Evening Grosbeaks are the winners when it comes to the three most observed species.
Need a rest? Stop at the Érablière, a heated shelter where you will be welcomed by staff who are passionate about migratory bird conservation. The NWA is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is $4 per person. For more information on the services offered and the rates, call 418-827-4591 or send an email to email@example.com.
The Cap Tourmente NWA, located 45 minutes from downtown Quebec City, is part of a Canadian network of 146 protected areas aimed at conserving important habitats for wild species, some of which are at risk.
