Maple, fir, cherry, wintergreen, mushrooms and so many other resources from the boreal forest allow us to nourish ourselves and heal the wounds and discomforts of life. The natives have discovered many of them, the newcomers too, but there is surely a lot to learn.

We invite you to familiarize yourself with this wealth that surrounds us to better appreciate its virtues and better preserve it. You will surely like to taste these known or unknown flavors that can season and enrich the flavors of everyday life.

CHEERS!

This activity will be preceded by: the black bear and its habitat.
