On December 20, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna unveiled Canada’s 2017 Tentative List of World Heritage Sites. Sadly, as you may know by now, Mount Royal was not selected as one of the Canadian sites proposed for UNESCO recognition.
Just in time for the holidays, Les amis de la montagne is thrilled to present our brand-new website full of new content and new ways for Montrealers and visitors to enjoy Mount Royal. And what better way to do so than by giving our newsletter a fresh new look as well!
Les amis de la montagne continues to play a very active role in discussions surrounding road safety on Mount Royal, which have intensified in recent weeks following the tragic death of the young cyclist Clément Ouimet on Camillien-Houde Road on October 4, 2017.
Les amis is getting a makeover on the Web! Featuring a brand-new look and feel, our website and newsletter will make discovering Mount Royal a pleasure for both young and old. Watch your screens as new features are forecast to appear by the first snowfall!
The season of community environmental actions with Les amis de la montagne has just come to a close on Mount Royal. Between May and October, nearly 1,500 volunteers got involved on the mountain to preserve its natural habitats and contribute to the preservation of its biodiversity.
As part of the Seeds for the Future of Mount Royalproject, the Collectif pour une forêt durable joined forces with Les amis de la montagne to present their "Une forêt de possibilités" campaign and offer various activities on the ephemeral projects site of the Université de Montréal MIL Campus.
