Inventory of biodiversity and ecosystems

With support from Gatineau’s Green Fund, we undertook an inventory of habitats and species of our green spaces (led by the Club des ornithologues de l’Outaouais), published a bilingual folder describing points of ecological and historical interest in our neighbourhood, installed three interpretation panels, and led a series of heritage walks and bike rides.
