Refuge faunique Marguerite-D’Youville
There’s nothing like a visit to the Refuge faunique Marguerite-D'Youville to discover the St. Lawrence’s wetlands. In my opinion, this wildlife preserve is home to one of the most beautiful marshes in the Montréal area. And what a view of the River and the city! I loved walking the trails with the audioguide and dong the exciting digital rally.
