In 2019, we launched a campaign to protect greenspaces across Ottawa. You can read more about this campaign, called “Keep Nature in Our Neighbourhoods”, at the site linked here.
We initiated this campaign in the community of Kanata North, specifically in the neighboorhoods of Morgan’s Grant and Beaverbrook. Both neighbourhoods are facing significant threats to local vulnerable natural spaces.
To help community members organize in response the greenspace threats, we have compiled some community resources:
- Information about Keep Nature in Our Neighbourhood Workshops
- Details about our campaign to prevent expansion of the urban boundary to limit urban sprawl can be found here
- Greenspace Protection group operating in Kanata North: Kanata Greenspace Protection Coalition
- For information about Greenspace issues across the city, join the Greenspace Alliance mailing list: Greenspace Alliance of Canada’s Capital
To help out with our Greenspace Protection program and/or other Living City programs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
