ALUS in Montérégie

In 2016, ALUS Canada partnered with the Fédération de l’UPA de la Montérégie to establish the first-ever ALUS program in Québec.




The ALUS Montérégie program covers the territory of two watersheds, the Bassin versant de la rivière des Hurons and the the Bassin versant des ruisseaux Hazen-Bleury et de la Barbotte. In its first year, the ALUS Montérégie program established projects on six hectares, primarily riparian pollinator strips.
