Henri Lavallee

The Ecology program at Laurentian University provides an array of interesting courses in French and English. Many of these courses include field research opportunities in the bountiful nature which surrounds the main campus. The experience in field monitoring practices and ecological knowledge prepared me to work for private surveys and governmental agencies. However,  I believe that the most valuable aspect of my experience here has been exploring the Laurentian campus trails with the knowledge I gained in class
