The image of a log driver is part of our collective identity. But what remains of the era when log driving dominated our waterways? Traces of this era, such as old dams, bridges and stranded logs, sometimes disrupt the ecosystem.

At La Mauricie National Park, a large operation is underway to remove logs as a part of the conservation and restoration of aquatics ecosystems to restore nature to its rightful place.

Come and discover the little-known work of those undertaking the log cleanup in this interactive family exhibit that will transport you into the fascinating world of ecological restoration.

This exhibition is presented by Culture Trois-Rivières and Parks Canada and designed with a concern for sustainable development.
