This spring, we had the privilege of working with the iconic Parc du Poisson Blanc to create their clothing. The cherry on top? They invited us to visit them and discover their site, straight out of our dream summer.

Founded in 2004, la Corporation du Parc du Poisson Blanc is a non-profit organization whose mission is to oversee the development and integrated management of Notre-Dame-du-Laus' recreational and tourism resources. It is mandated by the Antoine-Labelle MRC and the municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Laus to operate the Poisson Blanc Regional Park.

In 2006-2007, three technicians were hired to initiate and coordinate the cleaning of the reservoir. Major clean-up operations, in particular with the Air-Eau-Bois outdoor base, freed the islands of nearly two tons of garbage left behind by unsupervised human occupation. As part of our efforts to ensure more respectful use of the islands, latrines have been installed on several of them.

In 2008, the Poisson Blanc Regional Park was officially created. Reservations for camping sites on the islands began in 2009, and in 2010 canoe and kayak rentals were added. Between 2008 and 2012, a system for supervising and monitoring the use of the reservoir's islands was put in place. Nearly 10 km of hiking trails have also been laid out on Devil's Mountain.

Finally, a splendid reception pavilion called Le Bastion was inaugurated at the start of the 2012 season. Today, it is the pride of the park team and visitors alike.
