Mount Royal, Greener Thanks to Our Volunteers!

Since our creation over 30 years ago, Les amis de la montagne has been drawing our strength from an ever-growing community of volunteers. In 1998, this was taken a step further with the launch of the Environmental Stewardship Program, which allows Montrealers to play an active role in the conservation of Mount Royal's natural habitats.

New Entrance to Mount Royal Park

A brand-new entrance allows residents and visitors to access Mount Royal Park on the mountain’s western side via Côte-des-Neiges Rd. The repurposed area, a former limestone quarry, now showcases native vegetation, a rocky promontory, as well as a new staircase and paved way leading to Olmsted Path.
 

Mount Royal, Greener than Ever Thanks to You

Last Sunday, May 5, hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers of all ages answered our call to join in the annual spring cleaning of Mount Royal Park’s wooded areas!

​The OCPM Report on the Repurposing of Remembrance / Camillien-Houde Concurs with our Recommendations

Les amis de la montagne welcomes the conclusions of the Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) report on the future of the Remembrance / Camillien-Houde roadway. By the same token, we wish to underscore the urgent need to define a global vision of accessibility and safe mobility for the mountain as a whole.
 

A Bird’s-Eye View of Mount Royal

Their songs inspire us and their plumage fires our imagination. Birds have long been a subject of fascination for those of us who delight in looking to the treetops and skies in search of the winged species. Now that spring is finally adding a touch of green to the mountain, Project FeederWatch provides us with information about the birds that visit the feeders of Mount Royal Park in the winter, thanks to the precious help of our volunteers.
 

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Emerald Ash Borer on Mount Royal

If you have recently visited the mountain, perhaps to stroll on Olmsted Path or to enjoy the view from the Camillien-Houde lookout, you might have seen or heard felling operations in the woods. The reason behind all this noise is a little insect that is causing a lot of damage to our green spaces: the emerald ash borer. Now, after more than two years, the mountain will once again become a haven of peace and tranquility.
