Nature near you

Nature near you

The Nature Near You team goes out to meet with the citizens to bring them to discover the environment and the biodiversity that surrounds them in the boroughs and municipalities, right in their neighborhood.

By demystifying certain environmental issues, as well as paying attention to the plants, animals, atmospheric phenomena or insects around them, citizens, accompanied by our mediators, are urged to take action to protect biodiversity and the environment in a way that fosters a healthy and sustainable bond between humans and nature.

Two ways to connect with you

Micro-museums | In the boroughs

Created by and for citizens, the Espace pour la vie micro-museums are temporary artistic and scientific installations that go from one borough to another to give people the opportunity to discover nature and environmental issues that concern them specifically.

Each micro-museum focuses on a particular issue identified by the local communities of a given borough, and our mediators delve into this issue to sensitize citizens to see their immediate environment differently in order to better protect it.

The Nature Brigade on tour | In public places

The Nature Brigade presents animations on subjects targeted by and for communities. This Brigade travels throughout the island of Montreal and the territory of the Montreal Metropolitan Community, in indoor and outdoor public places, year round! The Brigade helps you to learn more about the Montreal archipelago, its history, its fauna and flora, the canopy of the metropolitan territory and the fascinating insects that live among us inside our homes.

Come meet and chat with us!

Check out the full program to discover the issues of concern to citizens and to take part in the experiences proposed by the communities:
