Mont Rougemont, a 30 square kilometers forest block, is a jewel of biodiversity for the Montérégie region. The mountain is home to 240 species of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles, 800 plant species of which 34 are very rare, and six exceptional forest ecosystems.What you will be doing
Participants will help gather wood and debris from the site to place them on the trails to be closed. They will also participate in the installation of appropriate signage to indicate that access is closed. At the beginning of the activity, explanations will be given regarding the protection status and the biodiversity in the Nature Reserve.Why you will love it
The activity will give the participants the privilege to visit a property whose public access is usually not allowed since there is no official trail network running through the territory. During the activity, participants will take a breath of fresh air and help improve the protection of sensitive habitats in the Nature Reserve.Questions?
