All Hands On Deck Webinar / Séminaire en ligne

Every spring, millions of birds from various species migrate back to Canada from their southern wintering grounds to come feed and nest. This is a critical time for them. Sierra Club Quebec Chapter is researching and sharing best practices municipalities can apply to mitigate effects of our potentially damaging activities like use of pesticides, landscaping, and clearing under utility lines.

The Migratory Birds Convention Act is intended to provide protection to these migratory birds. However, additional work and research is constantly required on current policies and practices to adequately protect them. Failing to do so could have serious impacts on these fragile animals that spread seeds, pollinate our flowers, and control insect populations.
