Montréal Urban BioKit

cover of publication

To mark the International Year of Biodiversity, the Biosphère environment museum has developed BioKits, observation guides for wildlife, plant life and nature. Primarily designed for children over six and their parents, the BioKits help you discover the country's natural riches using your five senses. Whether in the city or out in the wild, each BioKit will lead you to new adventures!

The Montréal Urban BioKit invites you to explore the unsuspected biodiversity of this city, from the smallest alleyways to the largest urban parks. This BioKit addresses many characteristics and issues specific to Montréal: the importance of water, green alleyways, endangered species, and more! Ten major parks of the City of Montréal are featured separately (circuits). Their history, natural particularities, endangered and invasive species are highlighted. Geocaches hidden around some of these parks provide additional information. Equipment: GPS unit not provided (optional). Duration: about 90 minutes, depending on the itinerary chosen.
