Discovery Activities

Let Us Guide You...

Participate in the park’s discovery activities. Let a park warden share his or her passion for the territory and the nature it protects.

Parc national du Mont-Orford is proud to present discovery activities for the whole family. Whether you choose an evening talk in the amphitheatres, tales around the campfire, a tour on the water of Étang aux Cerises or Stukely lake, you’ll enjoy discovering the beauties of the park. Kids have plenty to do to, and can have lots of fun playing the role of a park warden or building a beaver hut.

Here are a few activity themes:

  • Amphibians
  • Turtles
  • Beavers
  • Bats
  • Nocturnal birds of prey (owls)
  • The formation of the Appalachian Mountains
  • The history of the park
