For the second year in a row, the Friends of Carlington Hill have secured funding from TD Park People. TD Park People provides grants to small community groups events and activities related to public parks, and also has a wealth of information and research on the importance and value of our natural areas.
This year, Friends of Carlington Hill has teamed up with the Friends of Hampton Park (part of the Hampton-Iona Community Association), less than 2 kilometres away to raise awareness of urban forests.
On June 27, we’ll be hosting one-hour webinar that introduces new and long-time residents alike to the Carlington Woods, an environmentally protected inner city urban forest. Guest speaker Owen Clarkin, 2nd VP, Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club, will share his expertise on the rich tree biodiversity to be found in the Carlington Woods and answer your tree-related questions.
Look for event registration details on the Friends of Carlington Hill Facebook page and on Twitter @CarlingtonHill starting June 15, 2020.
