The Arboretum is the permanent home for 5 species of owls. Reports of sightings are made in all seasons and at all times of day. Bring your headlamps, flashlights and snowshoes (TBD) and join Chris Cloutier as we venture off the beaten path to explore the darkest recesses of the Arboretum in search of these legendary and awe-inspiring birds.
Cost: Members: $10 per person; Non-members: $15 per person
Sugaring off Party
On Sunday, March 30, from 12 to 4 p.m., celebrate the return of springtime in the Arboretum sugar maple grove, one of the few remaining on the Island of Montreal. Tours of the sugaring operations will be offered to show how the Arboretum produces maple syrup in the most traditional way: on a wood fire, from sap collected in buckets. Hot dogs, taffy on snow and maple syrup will be sold onsite.
