Discover a magnificent natural field of milkweed specifically left uncultivated to provide a home and food for the monarch butterflies in Forges du Saint-Maurice.
Take a walk in this formal industrial village and bask in the sun as you admire butterflies flying in and around. Enjoy a delicious picnic in this serene space and take the opportunity to explore the interpretive area. Peek through the slots of the observation wall and see if you can spot a few species that live in this natural habitat. Look for the artificial nesting sites created for tree swallows and pollinators, as well as the artificial roosts made for little brown bats.
