11 new interpretive panels in Terra-Cotta Natural Park

The City of Pointe-Claire is proud to unveil 11 new interpretive panels installed along the various paths in Terra-Cotta Natural Park to raise awareness in the community about protecting this rich natural environment and everything they see in the park.

“Protecting biodiversity is important, and the goal of this project is to teach the community by offering an interactive and enriching experience when visiting this ecologically valuable woodland,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

Residents can read the new panels to learn more about the history of Terra-Cotta Natural Park, from the brick-making factory that once stood there to today; its diverse wildlife, from bats to invertebrates and the eastern screech owl; and its flora, with panels on the shagbark hickory, Terra-Cotta stream, the evolution of the forest, wildlands, wetlands, and invasive exotic plants.

An interactive panel showing the differences between the seasons and how they affect the natural environment has also been installed in the park.

The park’s five entrances also feature general information panels, which include a map of the various paths and the rules to follow in order to protect the integrity of this nature preserve.

This project was made possible with the financial contribution of the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l’environnement and the cooperation of Nature-Action Québec.
