LES AMIS DE LA MONTAGNE BEGIN THE COUNTDOWN TO THE TUQUES BLEUES CELEBRATION

Yes, there's still snow on the mountain!

Montreal, February 17, 2009 - The countdown has begun to the 12th edition of the Tuques Bleues Celebration and Snowshoe Event to be held this Thursday, February 19 on Mount Royal beginning from Smith House at 5:45 p.m.

Once again, 800 Montrealers will trade their "Bluetooth" devices for the iconic blue tuque, while tramping through the mountain’s moonlit forest on snowshoes!

This evening is magical and emblematic of Les amis de la montagne; the Tuques Bleues support the organization’s mission to protect and conserve Mount Royal.

Funds are invested in educational programs, protection activities for Mount Royal, hands-on projects such as tree-plantings, and the creation of private-public partnerships in support of the revitalization of sectors of Mount Royal Park.

 
A handful of tickets are still available and may be purchased by calling Anna Coscia at 514 843-8240 ext. 239.

 

 

 

 

 

Details on the event are available on Les amis’ website, including:

You may also view the photos taken during the partners’ launch event held at Smith House on January 29 and listen to the 30 second public service announcement heard on Astral Radio’s CHOM, CJAD and Virgin Radio 96.
