Invitation to Les amis de la montagne’s public forum
Towards the Sommet du Mont-Royal in spring 2013
“The Stewardship of Mount Royal’s Natural Spaces”
Mount Royal benefits from a special legal status that aims to ensure the harmonious development of its natural and cultural heritage by promoting the enhancement and conservation of its distinctive elements. How can we put into place the conditions necessary to ensure the preservation of the mountain’s natural spaces while also encouraging greater accessibility to the site?
Join our panel of guests who will share their initiatives and best practices in the preservation of Mount Royal’s natural spaces and to share your thoughts and ideas.
