Les amis receive $2,500 for their urban tree nursery project
Since 1994, Les amis de la montagne have mobilized members of the Montreal community in tree and shrub-planting exercises on Mont Royal. Since 2006, about 2,000 plants have been planted per year. In total, 3,500 volunteers have planted 16,000 trees.
Over the next several years, Les amis are getting involved in a project in partnership with another local organization to develop an urban tree nursery in Montreal that also has an educational mission. Thanks to a financial contribution from the Fido-Evergreen « Share your care » campaign, Les amis will undertake the following pilot projects this fall:
The educational approaches and methodologies used in these two projects could serve as a model for the nursery’s future activities.
