Save the Deschênes Forest !

The City Council voted on July 7 to stop the sale of a parcel of land at the corner of Fraser Street and Lucerne Boulevard which harbours a heritage forest.  The Association was actively involved in initiatives to ensure the conservation of this forest.

A “Save the Fraser-Lucerne Forest” Facebook group has been very active and currently has 1200+ members.  Many citizens wrote to City Councillors to ask that this forest be kept as part of the City’s heritage.

You will find here a document summarising the ecological, cultural and human value of the Deschênes Forest (in French with detailed English summary), a video and a slide presentation showing the beauty of the forest.

Your Association will always fight for protection of Deschêne’s green spaces.  Our vision is to see a Deschênes nature park including all the green spaces between Deschênes rapids and Fraser Street.
