Welcome to Parc National du Mont-Mégantic
Similar to many other provincial parks in Québec, Parc National du Mont-Mégantic is a lovely slice of preserved eastern Canadian woodlands and wilderness, an arcadian escape from the civilized world. Unlike many provincial parks, there's a heavy science component to Mont-Mégantic: this is the site of a major astronomy observatory, and was the world’s first International Dark Sky Reserve. In scientific terms, that means the area possesses exceptional visibility under nocturnal conditions. In layman's terms: damn, the stars sure are pretty here.
