Gault Nature Reserve

Gault Nature Reserve

The Gault Nature Reserve at Mont Saint-Hilaire is internationally recognized for its long history of scientific research and in 1978 was the first Canadian site to be named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Located at the eastern edge of greater Montreal, the reserve is home to one of the richest clusters of biodiversity in Quebec with over 600 plant species, 800 types of butterflies, 13 kinds of fish, 45 mammals, and 180 bird species. The site, which consists of seven low hills surrounding a small lake, provides an excellent venue for university teaching and research.
