Passionate about nature since my childhood, I spent most of my time in the forest. I grew up in northern Quebec, in Chibougamau, where my passion for the forest developed. As an adult, I served in the commandos. I was in the field day and night, no matter the conditions and the circumstances. I then studied protection and exploitation of wildlife areas, at the Forestry School of Duchesnay. Since then, I have been working for the Massif du Sud regional park. Today, I want to share my passion for nature as well as my knowledge accumulated over time. So I became a guide and started my own survival school– Jonathan Ménard
