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.
Please hold the date for an Electronics Waste Depot at the Hunt Club – Riverside Park Community Centre (3320 Paul Anka Drive) on Saturday, April 24 from 10am to 4pm.
We will be partnering with Junk that Funk again this year, following all COVID protocol and safety guidelines.
