Top 10 Nature Hot Spots in Ottawa

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC)

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has identified top 10 nature hot spots in Ottawa, based on suggestions from the public and information from a variety of sources and databases, including regional studies, Important Bird Areas, iNaturalist, eBird and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility.

They include: Marlborough Forest, Burnt Lands Alvar, Carp Hills, Constance Bay Dunes, Ottawa River, Shirley’s and Britannia Bays, Stony Swamp, Pinhey Sand Dune Complex, Albion Wetlands, and Mer Bleue Bog

Nationally and globally imperilled species and habitats, wildlife and ecological corridors can be found at these hot spots. Not only are these places important for wildlife, they are accessible to urban residents and help rekindle or enhance their bond with nature, contributing to the quality of life in our cities.
