Nature et Tradition returns to valley of Rivière Rouge

The Nature et Tradition art trail is back for a second year in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. This year, the trail beside Riviere Rouge at Camping des Chutes de la Rouge features 15 works by 11 artists set among the oaks, pines, and hemlocks with the sound of rapids in the background.

Camping des Chutes de la Rouge is located on Route 148 where the highway crosses Rivière Rouge. Residents of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, the MRC d’Argenteuil, and tourists are invited to enjoy the trail.
