The reserve contains a variety of habitats, such as old forests, temporary ponds, and fields. This variety supports a wide diversity of wildlife, including listed species such as the southern flying squirrel, bats, and chimney swifts.
The Clarke Sydenham nature reserve plays an important role for Le Nichoir. It offers a perfect area to release successfully rehabilitated wild birds into a protected place with abundant food sources. We also use the reserve during our education programs and activities.
With support from the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l’environnement and the Fondation de la faune du Québec, Le Nichoir installed a series of interpretation panels explaining the different habitats and birds of the reserve. The panels can be viewed here:
