Working Together for a Greener Mountain

Les amis de la montagne relies on citizen engagement to fulfil our mission of protecting Mount Royal. Indeed, we are lucky to be supported by a vast community committed to preserving this beloved green space. Faced with issues such as climate change and the proliferation of invasive non-native pests, the mountain’s biodiversity needs a helping hand now more than ever.
