Field Trip to Laflèche Cave / L'excursion à la caverne Laflèche $15 $15

Spend an afternoon spelunking in one of the largest caves in the Canadian Shield. The Lafleche Caves are a half hour drive from Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills of Quebec. The cave is very accessible but you will be required climb ladders and walk in tight spaces. The temperature of the cave is a constant 5°C year round. This is an excellent opportunity to go underground and learn about the deep Earth history of the region. The tour is sponsored by Mining Matters. 

Venez passer l’après-midi à faire de la spéléologie dans l'une des plus grandes cavernes du Bouclier canadien. La caverne Laflèche est située à environ une demi-heure d’Ottawa dans les collines de la Gatineau près de Val-des-Monts au Québec. La caverne est facilement accessible. Muni de votre casque, il vous faudra monter des échelles et marcher dans des espaces restreints. La température à l’intérieur de la grotte est toujours constante à environ 5°C. C’est une excellente occasion de venir explorer le milieu souterrain et d’en apprendre davantage sur l’histoire géologique de la région. Le transport pour cette excursion est en partie parrainé par Mining Matters.
