Pointe-Claire receives $3,500 for a nature day camp
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, is pleased to announce that the City has received a $3,500 grant from the Fondation de la faune du Québec to organize a nature day camp, through the Fonds nature Madeleine-Auclair.
“The City always offers a wide variety of day camps. This new addition for the summer of 2018 will allow children to discover Terra-Cotta Natural Park and its many attractions,” stated Mayor Belvedere.
Throughout the two-week camp, young participants will have the opportunity to discover the types of plants in the park, take samples of water from the stream and analyze them, observe birds of prey, learn about how animals communicate with each other, and much more.
Campers can also taste honey made by bees from the hives at the Central Library and observe bees at work in a safe environment. Team games will take place every Friday afternoon at Terra-Cotta Natural Park.
“We are committed to developing new activities to raise awareness among children about the importance of biodiversity and preserving it throughout our territory. This initiative will also help maintain the quality of life and improve the services offered by the City,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
The nature camp is already full and will take place from July 9 to 20. The grant will allow 20 participants, aged 8 to 12, per week to discover the hidden aspects of biodiversity at Terra-Cotta Natural Park and participate in sports activities.
