Your Anima Lumina Evening

During the evenings since July 2016, Zoo Sauvage de St-Félicien in Lac-Saint-Jean transforms into a spectacular outdoor scene infused with sound and light along the Anima Lumina trail. One evening, a young boy who could communicate with animals, followed the moon into the night and along his trail (and yours), he spoke with many different species that crossed his path. You’re at forefront of exclusive encounters in which nature comes to life in a unique and incredible fashion. Surrounded by the shadows and howls of the creatures of the night with multimedia presentations animating the many colours of the boreal forest. Moonlight illuminates the path within a mysterious and magical atmosphere. Anima Lumina is for everyone of all ages, a perfect activity for families, nature enthusiasts and those with poetry in their hearts.
