We will begin in eastern Laval, at the Laval Cemetery at 5505 rang du Bas-Saint-François, Laval. This is a very interesting location with a great mix of habitat. We visited the cemetery on Tuesday and were rewarded with a great sighting of a Northern Mockingbird! We will be driving through the cemetery, stopping at a number of different spots to check out the birds.
After completing the tour of the cemetery, we'll travel in convoy to the Tylee Marsh at 202 chemin de la Grande-Cote in Rosemere. At the cemetery I'll provide everyone with a map with the route from the cemetery to the Tylee Marsh. From the parking lot we'll walk the long, elevated boardwalk through the marsh and then take a couple of trails that lead down to the waterfront on the Mille-Iles River.
