The shores of Lake Massawippi and its immediate watershed teem with wildlife and plant species. All you have to do is keep your eyes open. You may also have to get up a little earlier to enjoy the deeper quiet and take advantage of the perfect light.
EverBlue Massawippi wants to promote and preserve the wonderful diversity of our ecosystem.
The list of species mentioned here is far from exhaustive, but all call Lake Massawippi and its watershed home, including the remarkable great egret, spotted here for the first time two years ago (not to be confused with the snow goose).
Can you recognize the beautiful bald eagle, the wild strawberry flower, the majestic blue vervain? You will envy the incredible natural flowerbeds of hemp-agrimony no landscaper can hope to imitate!
How about the rose-breasted grosbeak, warbler or the predatory merlin, dropping feathers on our unwitting heads as he feasts on other birds?
Did you know that Canadian maidenhair and the Canada lily are rare and protected?
Take another look and see the lake differently.
If you find a rare species or take a picture you consider exceptional,
share it with us.
The only criterion is that the photo be taken at the lake or in its immediate watershed.
