Cap Tourmente - Nature as far as the eye can see!

cover of publicationGeese? Of course, but so much more to see, learn and do! The Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area (NWA) is best known for the spectacular sight of huge flocks of migrating geese in spring and fall. Beyond that, however, it is an exceptional meeting place for a diversity of natural environments. Administered by Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service, the Cap Tourmente NWA is located 50 km east of Quebec City on the shores of the St. Lawrence. It encompasses 2400 hectares (24 km2) of marshes, wetlands, plains and forests that are positively teeming with species of all kinds. Cap Tourmente’s highly diverse habitats make it one of Quebec’s best bird-watching sites.
