Volunteers Needed!

Les Amis du Parc Meadowbrook is a lively, dynamic group whose mission is to transform Meadowbrook, a 57-hectare green space that straddles the city of Cote St. Luc and the borough of Lachine, into an urban heritage nature park accessible to all. Members of the group are also involved in a great many ways in the fight to preserve green spaces on the Island of Montreal.

If you would like to make a contribution and bring your special expertise to the table, here are a few suggestions:

Communications Committee

If you are a WordPress or a Wiki wizard, we would like to hear from you for help with our website (www.lesamsidemeadowbrook.org) and our ecomap project (www.montrealecomap.com). We could also use some help on our Facebook (www.facebook.com/sosmeadowbrook) and Twitter pages (@ParcMeadowbrook) and our petition on Change.org.

Les Amis has started a tour of Lachine, Cote St-Luc, Montreal West, NDG and Westmount to inform West-End residents of green issues. If you have a suggestion for a venue or would like to help organize these events, we can certainly use your help.

Guardians of Meadowbrook

This is a special initiative to protect Meadowbrook until it becomes a nature park. A number of projects are under consideration: bird boxes and feeders (Meadowbrook is well known to birdwatchers), renaturalization, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter, access routes to the area, etc.

Good research, collaborative and negotiating skills are required in this case.

Sauvons la Falaise

Les Amis and Sauvons la Falaise (www.sauvonslafalaise.ca) are partner organisationsSauvons la Falaise’s mission is the protection of the Falaise Saint-Jacques ecoterritory that stretches four kilometres from Montreal West to Westmount along St. Jacques Boulevard.

Here is a special assignment, one best suited to geography buffs. We need to make a map of the Falaise with GPS coordinates. For those with a more political bent, we also need volunteers to follow the proceedings of the Bon voisinage Turcot meetings in NDG and the Sud-Ouest, as well as volunteers to attend municipal council meetings.
