The Great Celebration of Nature brings the magic of spring to the Plains of Abraham every year! The National Battlefields Commission invites nature lovers to the 21th edition of this family-friendly rendezvous with horticulture. On Sunday, May 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the green team will throw open the greenhouse doors and offer visitors friendly plant and tree advice. Some 30 exhibitors specializing in various environmental fields will be onsite to assist and educate visitors. A wide range of activities will be offered.

The park’s greenhouses—among the oldest still active in Quebec—grow approximately 45,000 annual, biennial, and perennial plants that are used to beautify the Plains of Abraham and Des Braves Park. Here, tradition and state-of-the-art horticulture techniques go hand in hand. Come see for yourself at this one-day open house. The staff of the National Battlefields Commission will be on hand to answer your questions and give practical advice on plant and tree care.

Outside the greenhouses, a team of experts will share their knowledge on a variety of nature-related topics. The Great Celebration of Nature is a unique opportunity for kids to learn about what archeologists do. There will be an introduction to dig methods and a presentation of the various steps involved.

The Commission invites visitors to learn more about its commemoration program, its sustainable development initiatives, and the park's forest inventory. Staff will be at your disposal to answer questions.

The program for the 23rd edition of the Edwin Bélanger Bandstand will be revealed. To save paper, the Commission asks that you view the program online.

To make sure everyone has their fill, meals and snacks will be available onsite. Perfect for a picnic!
