Uplands Park Fall Clean Up

Updated – New Date!   Join your neighbours to clean Uplands Park on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 from 10 am to 12 pm as part of Cleaning the Capital.

Rain date, Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Tree Giveaway

Canceled! Unfortunately Ecology Ottawa has sent a notice that this event is cancelled due to tree shortages, combined with unprecedented demand. We apologize if you have registered already


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.

Uplands Park Cleanup

The Uplands Park Clean Up is cancelled due to rain expected to continue all weekend.   A clean up will be rescheduled in the next couple of weeks.

Paul Landry Park Cleanup

Rain date: June 20, 9:00am
Meet at Paul Landry Park sign.
Garbage bags and gloves are provided

Social distancing in effect, please bring your masks. Be prepared to help clear our pathways of litter and the bushes from blown in detritus. As we clean up our local parks, and the wooded areas around them, we also encourage you walk along your local roadsides, or ditches that may collect wind-blown garbage.

Garbage bags can be left at the city sign at Paul Landry Park.
*Please do not put household waste out, as it attracts rodents and creates a mess.*

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.


About the Presenter:
Ms. Berit Erickson has been an avid, ornamental gardener for over twenty years, and an enthusiastic wildlife gardener for the past four. Inspired by some good gardening reads and fortified with her love of gardening and nature, Berit has turned her Ottawa corner garden plot into a thriving pollinator garden for all to see. When not planting and tending to her garden, Berit is dreaming and learning about flowers, butterflies and all good things nature has to offer. She is also generously sharing her knowledge, and taking amazing photos of her enchanting, luscious garden. Explore Berit’s garden and her blog: cornerpollinatorgarden.net
