Stratégies Saint-Laurent, the de Gaspé Beaubien Foundation and 33 other organizations invite Quebec citizens to celebrate the river during the Week of the St. Lawrence, from June 4 to 12.

Some forty free (or almost free) activities are planned throughout Quebec to provide residents an opportunity to enjoy pleasant moments along the river and to reclaim this jewel of our cultural and environmental heritage.

The Week of the St. Lawrence offers activities for all tastes including: initiation to fishing for youngsters, an environmental fair, a fiesta, swimming, lectures, tree planting, educational activities on biodiversity and St. Lawrence ecosystems, and discounts on AML cruises and the Aquarium du Québec. Notably, the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre (CIMM), in collaboration with the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM), invites young and old alike to come and learn how to sing like the whales!

To make browsing for activities easier, the website allows users to consult the programming and to research activities by region or city: semainedusaintlaurent.ca

Additionally, a blog was integrated into the website to offer Internet users informative content written by experts specializing in a field related to the river.
