The City of Saint-Lazare commissioned T² Environnement to evaluate the potential presence of the bobolink, a species of bird with a precarious conservation status, as well as to conduct an inventory of birds and snakes in an herbaceous wasteland. A characterization of the terrestrial and wetland ecosystems present on the lot was also carried out.
Wildlife and wetland inventories were conducted in accordance with the methods in use in Quebec. In particular, the work confirmed the presence of bobolink and revealed the presence of wetlands in the study area.
The report presents the results of the inventory as well as recommendations aimed at conserving the natural heritage already present and increasing, to some extent, the biodiversity present on the site.
