On July 21st, the creations of the duo Zoné Vert and of the artist Paulette Vanier were presented.

Christine Juillard and Michel Bachelet (Zoné Vert) unveiled "La traversée des indigènes” (the crossing of the natives) made at the D'Arts et de rêves residence during the two previous weeks:  in and about the wetland area of the park, we can now admire five small steel containers highlighting little known or threatened indigenous plants.

We then inaugurated the work "Le Cocon Vendredi Treize" (the Friday 13th cocoon) by artist Paulette Vanier.  Planted last spring with the help of some volunteers, this big living cocoon, made of willows, was able to welcome in turn all of our guests.  Keep an eye on this evolutionary work as it will over time become more and more impressive!
