MONTREAL, May 20 /CNW Telbec/ - Montréal's Nature Museums invite you to attend the first symbolic action to launch the Life District, on Friday, May 21. At 1 p.m., 4,200 students and staff from the Quebec network of alternative public schools (RÉPAQ) will be tossing thousands of seed balls onto the path linking the Insectarium and Biodôme, to fill it with colourful flowers.

This kick-off gesture, representing a commitment to biodiversity, will be attended by Montréal Mayor Gérald Tremblay, Jean Lemire, representing the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, Valérie Desbiens, teacher and RÉPAQ organizer, and Charles-Mathieu Brunelle, Executive Director of Montréal's Nature Museums. It's the perfect way to mark this year's International Day for Biological Diversity.
