Webinar: How Can We Reconcile Public Use and Conservation of Mount Royal?

Learn more about the research and practices of the Leave No Trace program, aimed to reduce users’ impact on natural environments.

Friday May 7, 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.


Online Event

While the pandemic has shown us how important green spaces and neighbourhood parks are, these have received an increased number of visitors, not without consequences for their natural environments. For a large park such as Mount Royal, this added pressure may greatly affect the resilience of its natural environments, in the long term. It is therefore important to review our practices in order to limit our impact on these natural environments and be able  to enjoy their benefits for a long time to come!

The Leave No Trace program was developed on scientific knowledge to introduce sustainable solutions to conservation issues in natural environments, while enabling public use.

On May 7, please join us to discuss and learn about the Leave No Trace principles and the research that led to their adoption, with two eloquent experts:

Danielle Landry, from De ville en forêt, an organization for the promotion of responsible outdoor ethics, and Amis de la montagne Governor 

Éric Richard, scientific advisor at Les amis de la montagne, and a committed stakeholder in many conservation initiatives, as well as Corvée du Mont-Royal

The webinar will take place in French.

You will receive a Zoom link two days before the webinar.

This event is part of 24 Hours of Science.
