The Champlain Park Environ-teers are a group of community volunteers who help develop and maintain ‘green’ projects focussed on encouraging active-living, and the protection and remediation of the wooded areas found on National Capital Commission (NCC)-managed lands to the north and northeast of the Champlain Park Community, as well as the City of Ottawa parkland known as Champlain Park.

Champlain Park Environ-teers operate under the authority and direction of the Champlain Park Community Association (CPCA) – Environment Committee, and in close collaboration with the NCC and the City of Ottawa.

Environ-teer actions are guided by four core principles in relation to their neighbourhood park and neighbouring woodlands – Safety, Security, Utility and Preservation. 

Environ-teers can expect to be engaged in the following types of activities:

  • Care and maintenance of Environment Committee Project sites (watering, pest control, weeding);
  • Planting at Environment Committee Project sites;
  • Invasive plant species removal/mitigation measures;
  • Periodic woodland clean-up (garbage, campsite reporting and removal);
  • Periodic drainage ditch work to help prevent water pooling or trail obstruction;
  • General maintenance of the primary trail through Champlain Woods (wood chip spreading, directed light trimming, natural debris removal)
