Common buckthorn is an invasive alien shrub that threatens the biodiversity of the natural environment by preventing the natural growth of native trees and shrubs. Volunteers will be called upon to pursue cutting actions and participate in inventory.

Les amis de la montagne supports natural forest regeneration by overseeing the planting of native trees and shrubs. This helps to prevent the regrowth of invasive species and to reforest trails. Participants will plant and water trees at predetermined locations. Registration is mandatory.

Meeting point: in front of Smith House

Please present yourself at the meeting point a few minutes before the specified time. The group will not wait for latecomers.

Our activities have been modified to allow physical distancing between participants. However, each participant has the individual responsibility to respect the current public health measures. Masks are mandatory in park buildings but not required during outside activities.

Please note that the café and public restrooms in Smith House are closed. However, the Café des Amis and restrooms in the Beaver Lake Pavilion and Mount Royal Chalet are open to the general public.

Closed walking shoes and long pants are recommended.

We supply the gloves, tools and other necessary equipment, which will be disinfected before and after use. Participants will have their own tools, and no sharing of equipment will be allowed.
