The Conservation Patrol and park surveillance

2010-11-04

For a healthy and welcoming environment

Over and above the awareness-raising duties carried out by Les amis’ Conservation Patrol with visitors in Mount Royal Park, the patrol also collaborates with various municipal authorities in order to curb or reduce acts of delinquency or behaviours with negative impact on the natural environment.

The Conservation Patrol also collaborates with the Ville de Montréal in monitoring physical incivilities committed in the park, such as graffiti, camp sites and camp fires. In fact, patrollers documented and mapped over 66 graffiti “tags” in Mount Royal Park this past summer. The dossier was transferred to those responsible for the park at the Ville de Montréal and already, a portion of these tags have been removed.
