The program of interesting activities can help you learn more about this lush setting. Paddle along kilometres of calm water in a rabaska canoe with family or friends. Take part in a fascinating guided tour to discover hidden wetland treasures or uncover the surprising historical secrets of St-Charles Lake. If you would like to spot a mink, otter, beaver, hare or deer in its natural habitat, then keep your eyes and ears open! There is a good chance that, when visiting the area (either on your own or with a guide), that you will encounter an aquatic bird, a heron or a concert of croaking frogs.
