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.
Les amis de la montagne considers that the actions announced by the City of Montréal in Mount Royal Park, notably the felling of nearly 4,000 infested ash trees and the planting of approximately 40,000 trees, are necessary to minimize the damages caused by the emerald ash borer.
Les amis de la montagne invites you to rediscover the iconic Mount Royal Chalet during a special evening dedicated to the exhibition In the Footsteps of our Discoverers – The Remarkable History of Montréal, on August 31st.
