Bird protection Quebec "Field Trip"

Saturday 14 September - samedi 14 septembre
Pointe Yamachiche Leader: Frédéric Hareau
514-747-4904 (home - maison) 514-805-8491 (cell is for use only the day of the field trip in case of lateness - cellulaire à n’utiliser que le jour de la sortie en cas de retard) e-mail 

7:30 a.m. Allow one and a quarter hours driving time from Montreal. Take Highway 40 east to Exit 174. At the intersection in the middle of the exit, drive straight ahead. Within 100 metres there is a large parking lot which will serve as our meeting area. Mainly a walking trip on trails that are usually dry, but bring waterproof boots just in case. We will visit two areas on Lac Saint-Pierre with a variety of habitats (woods, marsh, riverside, fields.) Bring a lunch in case the trip runs a little long. Half day. There is a possibility of extending the trip into the afternoon.

7h30 Prévoir 1h15 de route depuis Montréal. Prendre l’autoroute 40 est , sortie 174. À l’intersection, au centre de la sortie, continuer tout droit. À 100 mètres de l’intersection se trouve un grand stationnement, lieu de notre rendez vous. Une bonne promenade nous attend au bord du Lac St-Pierre à travers champs, bois et terres qui risquent d'être humides, alors apportez des bottes imperméables. Apporter à boire et à manger si jamais notre sortie se prolonge. Demi-journée. Il y a une possibilité de prolonger la sortie en après- midi jusqu'à la Baie-du-Febvre si les participants le souhaitent.

Note: There are no facilities at this place, so I suggest you stop at the Maskinongé service area (3-4 kilometers after exit 160 heading east) on the way. Weather forecast for Saturday is very promising but bring rubber boots or waterproof shoes for Yamachiche.

There is an option to extend the trip to the south Shore of the Lac St Pierre, visiting other sites in Port St François and Baie-du-Febvre. These areas are always rich birdwise in the fall even though they are quite neglected at this time of the year. If you are interested in staying for the afternoon, bring a lunch.
