The second exhibition to take place is called "The invaders are here!", which arrived at us directly from the Musée du Fjord, in the beautiful city of Saguenay, in the district of La Baie.

This exhibition puts the animal and vegetable species which became intrusive in Canada under the spotlight.

They are not aliens, but common species like the domestic cat and earthworms are plagues without anyone realizing. Whether in water, dry land or in the air, there are species that live with us, but shouldn't be there...  but how did they settle here? How did they do to adapt themselves to our environment? These are some questions the exhibition will answer to satisfy the curiosity of the visitors.

It is made in a autonomous or semi-guided way, a novelty which the Center could not offer before.
