Hug one of our community’s heritage bur oaks this weekend as part of the city’s annual Jane’s Walk. Here are details http://www.janeswalkottawa.ca/walks/19820
We will visit six majestic bur oak trees that will be coming into leaf. Learn how Champlain Park ‘hood has managed to get a provincial designation for these heritage trees—to date, the only such designations in Ottawa. Discuss and strategize on ways to ensure heritage trees and all our natural heritage are recognized by the City of Ottawa as it reviews its tree by-law in 2018.
