Spring Chore

Spring chore

When? Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 10 am to 7 pm (postponed to Sunday in case of bad weather)

Why? Forêt Ô Cascades is an eco-tourism company whose mission is to make the forest accessible to the community while protecting the ecological integrity of the site.  We are proud to offer access to the park as a voluntary contribution to residents of the municipality of Rawdon as well as accessible rates to other visitors.  That said, we are a private company, and we do not receive any financial contribution from the government or the municipality.

Maintaining the trail system and the park in general requires considerable human and financial resources.  We are very grateful for the voluntary contributions of our fellow citizens, but did you know that you can also contribute to the project by involving yourself in time and physical energy during seasonal chores?  By soliciting you, we hope to promote the meeting of nature lovers, contribute to strengthen the sense of community and belonging to the project, around an activity that will contribute to the enhancement of the forest.  We also want to create opportunities to discuss the different projects we want to implement in the months and years to come.

Who? Everyone! Rawdon citizens, tourists, vacationers. Come solo, with friends or family.  There will be tasks and fun for young and old.
  • Clearing trails and sites;
  • Debarking and tree preparation for the construction of a nature play park and rest areas;
  • Cutting, slitting and storage of camping wood.
What to bring? Tools needed to perform the intended tasks: work gloves, pruners, sawdust, rakes.
In exchange?
  • A good dose of fresh air and spring nature;
  • Nurturing meetings;
  • An eternal recognition of your generosity;
  • Possibility of camping in tent or vanlife on site for free on Saturday evening
  • Complimentary BBQ supper + beers and non-alcoholic beverages, free for registered participants (from 17:00)
  • Fun; campfires all day & music in the evening (bring your instruments to contribute to the festive atmosphere)
And as the saying goes… “It takes a whole village to raise… a forest”
