|Shot taken near Kamouraska village (Quebec). The name "Kamouraska" comes from an Algonquin word meaning "where rushes grow at the water's edge". The village can be reached via Autoroute 20. Route 132 travels through the village.|
There are salt marshes along the river and there is an ecological reserve near the village. The marsh provides habitat used by birds for nesting and during migration. Cliffs along the river provide nesting habitat for Peregrine Falcons.
