Official opening of the Jardin André-Bouchard

On September 5th, Yves Daoust, president of the Regional Conference of Elected Officials of the Upper St. Lawrence Valley, welcomed partners and regional stakeholders committed to sustainable development to the official opening of a garden that is an oasis of biodiversity, Jardin André-Bouchard.

The garden was created in honor of Dr. André Bouchard, who was deeply fond of the Upper St. Lawrence Valley. He spent part of his childhood in the region and owned a residence there. As well, he conducted several research projects in plant ecology in the area.
