Réserve faunique de Papineau-Labelle

Wildlife reserve Regions:Outaouais, Laurentides City : Val-des-Bois
Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve was created in 1971 to protect wildlife and provide all Quebecers with improved access to hunting, fishing and outdoor recreational lands. The reserve, which boasts a rich and varied wildlife population, was named after two famous Quebecers: Louis-Joseph Papineau, the grand orator and politician renowned for his role in the uprising of 1837, and Antoine Labelle, the Saint-Jérôme priest nicknamed the King of the North for his part in developing this region of Québec.
Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve is a great setting for numerous outdoor recreational activities and is an ideal location for observing wildlife. Along with designated sport hunting and fishing areas, certain sectors are also set aside for observation purposes. The rich and varied vegetation provides excellent habitats for many birds and animals, including large populations of white-tailed deer, moose and beaver. The many lakes and rivers are home mainly to speckled and lake trout. A visit to the land of Louis-Joseph Papineau is your gateway to a world of tranquillity and beauty where the word "nature" takes on its full meaning.
