Since 1986, Les amis de la montagne has played an active role in conserving the biodiversity of Mount Royal and in raising awareness of the fragility and importance of natural environments.
In 2007, we launched the Environmental Stewardship Program to promote the protection and conservation of Mount Royal through citizen engagement and participation. Environmental stewardship refers to the means put in place to bring together the citizens, organizations and stakeholders of a territory to help protect its biodiversity and natural environments.
Our Environmental Stewardship Program combines in-depth knowledge of the mountain’s ecosystem with over 30 years’ experience in volunteer and community involvement, not to mention long-standing partnerships with the City of Montréal and large institutional owners on the mountain. Since its creation, it has become a means for citizens, associations and corporations to play a key role in the preservation of Mount Royal’s biodiversity.
Environmental stewardship activities are supervised by professionals and conform to a scientific, research-based process aimed at increasing knowledge about the natural environment and developing effective methods of preserving it.
This program also includes our annual Mount-Royal Clean-Up
and inviting citizens to get involved throughout the year
