In the Morning…

Visiting the zoo or the donkey farm

Travel through four continents, without taking a single flight, at the Zoo de Granby! The animal park will have you explore the world far and wide, as you meet its residents from South America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. Among the summer’s novelties, the new hippopotamus habitat promises to give you quite a thrill with its immersive panoramic projections. There’s also an installation that will allow you to measure your physical strength against that of these big mammals. As for the newcomers, Louis and Kuchimba, two Western Lowland gorillas, we bet they’ll be the stars of the season! You prefer farms to zoos? Well, in that case, let’s stop by Les ânes en culotte, in Sainte-Anne-de-la-Rochelle. Here, you’ll learn more about these animals and the famous donkey milk to which Cleopatra would confer all kinds of virtues! The farm plans to welcome guests starting July 15, at the latest. Our advice? Call before you leave home.

In the Afternoon…

Visiting the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises

Head out to the Marais de la Rivière aux cerises, near Magog. Here, in this magnificent ecosystem, you’ll observe our winged fauna as your youngsters discover these different species. You can explore the site by walking on more than four kilometres of trails, some with elevated boardwalks. In the present context, as indicated, it will be important to follow the one-way lanes, but this doesn’t make the visit less interesting! Until Labour Day, from Wednesday to Sunday, you’ll also be able to take a kayak out on the marsh accompanied by a nature specialist. And, before you leave, don’t forget to drop by the “De plumes et de bois : espèces menacées du Québec” exhibit, revealing some of the area’s threatened species.
