Inauguration of the urban pollinator gardens on September 26
Published on 22 September 2021
Ville de Châteauguay, in partnership with Miel Montréal, will inaugurate the urban pollinator gardens on Sunday, September 26, 2021.
Citizen participation project
The pollinator gardens project aims to rehabilitate a natural site by planting plants known for attracting insect pollinators. Over the next three years, over 1,500 plants will be planted in a 2,800 square metre protected area surrounded by boulevard Rameau, rue Poupart, boulevard Kennedy and carré du Zodiaque. It is also a privileged opportunity for residents to contribute to the transformation of their living environment by developing natural areas that encourage biodiversity.
During the inauguration on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 2 p.m., in the presence of the Mayor and elected officials at Ville de Châteauguay and representatives of Miel Montréal, visitors will be able to access the gardens located close to boulevard Rameau (between numbers 220 and 224).
For this occasion, guided visits of the gardens will be organized. Miel Montréal will also run an awareness booth to answer residents’ questions.
* If it’s raining, the event will be postponed to Saturday, October 2. The announcement will be published on the city’s Facebook page on Friday, September 24.
The event will be held in compliance with current public health restrictions and social distancing rules.
