Play an active role in the protection of Mount Royal’s beautiful environment by participating in weekly planting activities as part of our Environmental Stewardship Program. Come once or as many times as you want!

Taking part in our Environmental Stewardship Program provides many benefits:

  • Take concrete actions that contribute to the quality of the mountain’s natural habitats.
  • Get active while enjoying nature and the great outdoors!
  • Learn about environmental issues with our Conservation team.
  • Meet other volunteers who share common interests.

Les amis de la montagne supports the natural regeneration of the forest by overseeing the planting of native plants. Plantations help to prevent the regrowth of invasive species and to reforest certain trails. Participants are supervised by team leaders who have received training on planting techniques. (16 years and older)

Actions:

  • In teams of two or three, participants plant trees at predetermined locations and then water them.

Note: On August 31 and September 14, we will be managing invasive alien species (common buckthorn).

Buckthorn is an invasive alien shrub that threatens the biodiversity of the natural environment. Because of its presence in the undergrowth, it prevents the natural growth of many native trees and shrubs. (16 years and older)

Actions:

  • Pursue cutting actions
  • Participate in inventory

Important!

Please arrive at the meeting point a few minutes before the specified time. Latecomers will not be able to join the activity.

We recommend wearing long pants and closed shoes. Note that we provide gloves, tools and other necessary equipment.
