This is a unique opportunity to visit Victoriaville to observe the largest gathering of snow geese in Canada!
Description of Outing:
To see over 100,000 snowgeese flying, landing and resting on a small reservoir in the middle of Victoriaville is quite a spectacle. Novice and experts alike will find this outing beneficial, either in learning new skills or honing old ones. There is a thrill in photographing such large geese flying all around you at high speeds.
