Jeppesen Montreal supports Les Amis de la Montagne
Montreal employees recently joined Les Amis de la Montagne (friends of the mountain) to eradicate an invasive plant that grows on Mount Royal.
The team climbed the mountain that is just behind the office and spent their morning helping to remove the Common Buckthorn and learning about Mount Royal. The Common Buckthorn is an invasive plant and it needs to be removed in order to allow the native plants and trees to grow. Once the removal has been done, more volunteers will be planting native trees to populate the space newly created so the buckthorn doesn't grow again. A huge pile of the culprit was removed.
The team used this volunteer opportunity to learn about the different type of trees, the history and the surrounding area.
