Mount Royal Flora - the forest and the human story

With Éric Richard (Directeur des services éducatifs, Les amis de la montagne) and Kakwiranó:ron Cook (Aboriginal Outreach, McGill)

This 24 heures de science event helps us to discover a variety of stories about the plants that grow on the mountain and learn about the strong connection between native people and local flora. The forest on Mount Royal has been known by humans since prehistoric times. Wood was used for construction and tools, many plants were collected for food and others for medicinal uses.  

This event starts with brief presentation in the Museum, and continues with a walk up Mont Royal with Darrell Thompson, a traditional Mohawk medicine man. The complete talk and walk is two hours. Please bring your own snack to share at the summit where we will also serve a traditional Huron-Wendat strawberry drink.

WHERE: Start at the Redpath Museum at 5:00 p.m. FINISH: Mount Royal summit at 7:00 p.m. with refreshments.

FREE but suggested contribution:  $10 regular adult/ $5 student, child, senior, Max: $20/family.
