This Sunday, you are invited to participate in the environmental activities of the 22nd edition of the Corvée mountain clean-up featuring the theme, “Conserving the biodiversity of the mountain by greening and connectivity initiatives.”
This festive, community event allows Montrealers to take part in the greening of Mount Royal while learning more about inspiring projects aimed at maintaining urban biodiversity.
This year, 500 indigenous trees and shrubs will be planted in the new Parc du 3e sommet. The STM is generously providing transportation for tree planters from the Chalet du Mont-Royal to the northern flank of the mountain.
In Mount Royal Park, litter and recyclable matter will be collected in the underbrush and open green spaces. Common Buckthorn, an exotic invasive shrub, will be cut down to allow for the planting of indigenous species. Previous tree plantings since 2008 will be evaluated to determine health and growth conditions.
