April 27, 2022 – Quebec City – The National Battlefields Commission

The Great Celebration of Nature on the Plains of Abraham is celebrating its 25th anniversary on May 15, under the honorary presidency of Bruno Marchand, Mayor of Quebec City. The park’s greenhouses will open their doors to the public from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.! In addition to visiting the greenhouses, young and old alike will be admitted for free to different activities, including a plant giveaway, organized family fun, and on-site exhibitors.

As soon as the day begins, the National Battlefields Commission and the Association forestière des deux rives will be giving away Echinacea (coneflower) seedlings from the greenhouses and tree seedlings. Quantities are limited, and the plants will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis. In the open air, more than thirty exhibitors will be sharing their knowledge on a variety of environmental and sustainable development themes, like insects and the urban forest. Children will have fun going through an obstacle course and getting acquainted with heritage breeds of livestock. Characters in period costumes will interact with the public and present some aspects of the history of the Plains of Abraham.

New this year! Visitors are asked to bring old paint and paintbrushes they want to throw away. The artist Patrick Lavallée (Atelier du Gosseux), who among other things created the sculptures of the Halloween Garden on the Plains, will remake them into a work of art after the event. The organization Centraide (The United Way) will also be present to talk about the fight against inequalities and about social isolation and to collect donations.
