Plée Great Blue is one of the largest and rare peatland in southern Quebec still in its natural state. This ecological jewel covers about 15 km2 and is part of the larger set of wetlands in the Quebec City metropolitan region. Acting like a huge sponge, the site is an ecosystem of remarkable richness. We find there :
- More than 150 plant species, including carnivorous plants and several rare plants in Quebec
- Nearly 200 species of insects
- More than 100 species of birds, especially waterfowl
A wooden path on stilts 725 meters and an observation tower are built there to bring to light the inestimable value of this unique site while ensuring its protection.
