Réserve naturelle des Montagnes-Vertes, secteur Singer

The Green Mountains Nature Reserve is the largest protected area on private land in Quebec! Owned by Nature Conservancy Canada and developed by Appalachian Corridor, the Green Mountains Nature Reserve protects more than 70 km2 of the region’s natural heritage and includes two thirds of the Sutton Mountain Range. It is home to hundreds of animal and plant species, of which at least 90 are endangered or vulnerable, and more than 80 species of birds nest there every spring. We invite you to take the trails that crisscross this rich and diversified environment whose summit (810 m) reveals a breathtaking panorama.
