Résumé

With the aim of balancing agricultural activities and wildlife protection, an approach has been developed for restoring wildlife habitats on the shoreline of Lake Saint-Pierre (Groupe de travail « Intendance en milieu agricole : culture du littoral au lac Saint-Pierre », 2010). This approach involves stream maintenance (bank reshaping, planting, etc.) and conversion of annual crops back to perennial crops or natural grasslands. Work was carried out along three watercourses in the Baie-du-Febvre area in 2012 to restore fish habitat while also allowing adjacent land to be farmed. In parallel with this work, an agroforestry plot was developed at Ferme Bertco to assess the wildlife and agronomic benefits of intercropping traditional grain (or alfalfa) crops with rows of trees (oak, maple, poplar, walnut) spaced 40 m apart. In the summer of 2012, bird surveys were conducted at these four sites in order to obtain a picture of the bird communities present before enhancement and restoration work began. A second survey was conducted in the summer of 2017, encompassing the three watercourses and the agroforestry plot, to assess the changes in the bird communities five years after the restoration work.
