André Bouchard honoured by the CIEL

On 9 June, the Centre d’intendance écologique (CIEL) posthumously made André Bouchard an emeritus member. For the occasion, our collegue Jacques Brisson presented a summary of André Bouchard’s works on the ecological and forest history of the upper St.Lawrence. Talks and currently underway with the ministry of Environment as well as the conservation organisation Nature-Québec to give the name ANDRÉ-BOUCHARD to a nature reserve that encompasses the bogs of the Terres-noires-du-Haut-Saint-Laurent (Large and Small Teafield).
