Stittsville Cedar Grove Stewardship Project



Because many of our old grove forests have been forested in Eastern Canada it is important for us to protect the ones which still remain

The Ottawa Stewardship Council (OCS), in partnership with the City of Ottawa, is working to care for a city-owned cedar grove in Stittsville that is well over 100 years old. The OCS will be conducting a variety of programs and activities surrounding the forest during 2014-2015 including partnering with a high school for environmental monitoring, replanting open areas and constructing informal trails. On Sunday June 15th between 9 am and 3pm, they will also be hosting a bio-inventory to catalog flora and fauna and are currently looking for volunteer experts to help. If you have expertise in identifying plants, insects, birds or animals, or soil/geology sampling and would like to volunteer, contact the OCS at

The OCS is also looking for a community organization to take control of ongoing stewardship upon the project’s completion.
