The Macoun Marsh Trail is being prepared for our official opening on July 10. Seven plaques featuring local species were illustrated and written by St-Laurent Academy grade 6-7 students. Each bronze plaque is firmly attached to a large granite stone.

This plaque describes the blue-spotted salamander and the water bear.  Other plaques include one introduction sign, one each for painted turtles, chimney swifts, our outdoor classroom, and the fossils of the marsh.

This plaque celebrates the star of the marsh, our Native Butternut tree. This species is endangered.  Financial support came from the TD Friends of the Environment Fund.
