Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip"

2013 Summer Series of Birding - Trip #1 - Saturday, June 22

Ville LaSalle, Parc des Rapides  MAP

Seeing as a number of the recent outings in the spring were driving trips, some quite a distance from Montreal, I thought we would kick off the summer with a local, but always interesting outing, giving everyone an opportunity to come to an easy-to-get-to destination. We will be heading to Parc des Rapides in Ville LaSalle. Here are the details:

Start Time: 8:00 a.m.
Meet in the parking lot at Parc des Rapides, corner of LaSalle Blvd. and 6th Avenue in Ville LaSalle (just east of Bishop Power Blvd).

Driving Instructions: Take Hwy 20 to the Blvd. de la Vérendrye exit. Heading west on de la Vérendrye, follow it to Bishop Power Blvd/Shevchenko. Turn left on Bishop Power Blvd and follow to the waterfront on LaSalle Blvd. Turn left on LaSalle Blvd. and follow it to the parking lot at the corner of 6th Avenue. Parking is free.

From the West Island another option is Highway 20 to the Angrignon Blvd. exit. Follow Angrignon Blvd which changes name to des Trinitaires at Newman Blvd. Continue on des Trinitaires to de la Verendrye Blvd. Turn right on de la Verendrye and follow it to Bishop Power Blvd/Shevchenko. Turn left on to Bishop Power and follow the instructions above.

Public transportation is available from the Angrignon Metro station. Check metro and bus routes for full details.

This will be a half-day outing exploring the park and the waterfront in LaSalle and Verdun.
