The Forêt ancienne has an abundance of wildlife and remarkable flora. From spring onwards, a wide variety of nesting birds can be found, including several species of warblers, rose-breasted cardinals and many others. In winter, it is also possible to observe the many birds that flutter around the refuge’s feeders. Their songs enliven every inch of the forest.
The park is also a great place for mycology enthusiasts. If you take the time, you can see mushrooms of all colours and shapes, especially in the fall.
All along the trails, you will come across various interpretation panels that will teach you more about the importance of natural environments such as wetlands and riparian strips. You will also discover the particular species of fauna and flora specific to the park.
