Tree Giveaway

HCCA is partnering with Ecology Ottawa to provide free tree saplings to homeowners in the Hunt Club and Riverside Park communities. This year Ecology Ottawa’s goal is to give away 15,000 trees! One of the best ways to build community involvement is through direct action and distributing trees with tree care information supports this. By co-hosting with event organizers like HCCA, it’s convenient for members of the community to pick up trees and take action in an easily accessible way.

Tree saplings will be distributed in the parking lot of the Riverside United Church.

Please register before June 22

This helps us know how many saplings to reserve, and to provide you with notices, in the event that there are changes. (ie: pandemic restrictions etc)

    Butterfly Gardening in Ottawa: Webinar

    If I can do it, so can you

    In this webinar, you will learn how to provide food (nectar and host plants) and habitat (safe shelter) for butterflies, how to grow native plants from seed and where to buy them in the Ottawa area. You will also learn how to adapt an existing garden, or design a new, pollinator-friendly garden.
