Long Description:
The Ecomuseum zoo: Unique – Friendly – Natural
Located on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, the Ecomuseum zoo offers its visitors a unique and natural experience. It is operated by the St. Lawrence Valley Natural History Society, a not-for-profit organization with a mission that focuses on education, research and applied conservation.

You will discover the gem of the West Island of Montreal with courteous friendly staff and intimate glimpses into the lives of more than 115 species of live animals native to Quebec’s St. Lawrence Valley:

Admire majestic birds of prey like eagles, red-tailed hawks and owls.
Observe black bears, wolves, otters, caribou, porcupines and more than 110 other species in natural setting enclosures.
Visit the “From Light to Dark” exhibit to see nocturnal animals, reptiles, amphibians and fish as they go about their evening routines – during the day!

Situé sur la pointe ouest de l’île de Montréal, le zoo Ecomuseum offre à ses visiteurs une expérience unique et naturelle. Il est exploité par la Société d’histoire naturelle de la vallée du Saint-Laurent, un organisme sans but lucratif dont la mission est centrée sur l’éducation, la recherche et la conservation appliquée.

Avec son personnel courtois et attentionné ainsi que la possibilité de partager un moment de la vie intime de plus de 115 espèces d’animaux vivants indigènes de la vallée du St-Laurent au Québec, le zoo Ecomuseum est sans contredit le joyau de l’ouest de l’île de Montréal.

Admirez de majestueux oiseaux de proie tels que des aigles, des hiboux et des chouettes.
Observez des ours noirs, des loups, des loutres, des caribous, des porcs-épics et plus de 110 autres espèces hébergées dans des conditions naturelles.
Visitez la zone « Du jour à la nuit » ou vous pourrez admirer, en plein jour, des reptiles, des amphibiens, des poissons et des animaux nocturnes qui évoluent dans la pénombre.

Le zoo Ecomuseum est ouvert toute l’année. Les visiteurs peuvent donc profiter pleinement de la beauté de ce site de 11 hectares.

Parcourez les sentiers naturels entourés de magnifiques arbres et fleurs dans leur splendeur estivale, admirez la surprenante forêt automnale ou appréciez le site lorsqu’il revêt son manteau d’hiver des plus féeriques.
