Ecopark

Vision H2O is proud to be involved in several projects at the Centre Culturel et Sportif de Cormier-Village, located at 645 Route 945 in Cormier-Village. The group is working on the development of the Ecopark, which includes the landscaping in the Cultural Center's yard and the Acadian forest behind the Center. The project's aim is to educate the public about the importance of preserving the region's ecosystems.

A flora and fauna inventory was carried out to deepen knowledge of the site's biodiversity. This information was important in the planning and development of the trails, as well as for the interpretation sites that have been set up. We invite you to discover the Ecopark's trails and observe the beauty and biodiversity of the region.

Solar Panels

The Ecopark has completed its installation of 4 different solar panel systems (8 kW each for a total of 32 kW) for its 'Mission Net-Zero' project and future demonstration park.

The Ecopark is building a demonstrative park where the integration of clean technologies and natural ecosystems will be established.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada, the Government of New Brunswick and UNI Coopération financière.

Native Plants and Pollinators

Several flowerbeds have been planted with a selection of plants, many of them native flowers. Pollinators such as monarch butterflies come to feed and lay their eggs on the milkweed incarnate. These gardens also serve as reservoirs or seed banks for the propagation of plants to preserve biodiversity in the region.

Rain Garden

A demonstration rain garden has been set up in an area that collects water, and an interpretation panel has been installed to demonstrate the benefits of rain gardens.

Discgolf

DiGo Links Conservation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve woodlands and the Acadian Forest by developing Disc-Golf courses in the Atlantic region. Recently, 318 white pines were planted.

Disc golf is a sport that falls somewhere between golf and Frisbee. The rules are similar to golf but are played with a disc that must be thrown into a basket. It's a sport for all ages, requiring no special physical skills. Beginners quickly improve.

A first 18-hole course is under development, and a practice basket has been installed at the Cormier-Village Cultural and Sports Center.
