The City of Montréal is surrounded by large bodies of water of cultural importance, like the Saint Lawrence River. Natural habitats such as woods, grasslands, shrublands, wetlands, streams, as well as urban tree canopy and all kinds of green spaces are home to a diversity of flora and fauna species, including species at risk. Biodiversity, to which citizens attach high importance, is particularly rich in parks like the iconic Mount Royal Park.
