July 7 at 1 p.m. – Monarch celebration

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, is pleased to invite residents to the annual opening of the monarch butterfly educational garden on July 7, starting at 1 p.m., at the intersection of Belmont and Saddlewood Avenues on the municipal lot next to Terra-Cotta Park.

“Everyone is invited to join us for this family-friendly celebration. The garden was created as a place where monarch butterflies can live and reproduce and where residents can learn more about this species,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

The event will include many artistic and educational activities for the whole family, as well as the release of 200 monarchs. There will be a water station where you can refill your reusable water bottle. Bags of milkweed seeds, the plant on which monarch caterpillars feed, will also be distributed.

“We care about developing new educational activities focused on sustainable development that raise awareness in our community about protecting our environment while ensuring biodiversity continues to thrive in our area for current and future generations,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.

In case of rain, the event will be held in the evening, at 6 p.m.
