Organization: Ottawa Stewardship Council in partnership with Carleton University’s Institute of Environmental Science
Project Start Date: 2016
This project is a new initiative aimed at building community stewardship to create and care for a naturalized and accessible, multi-use greenspace along the Morgan’s Grant hydro corridor in Kanata.
The idea is to develop an integrated multi-use greenspace that will provide a healthy and diverse environment for the community. Ecological elements for this plan will include re-wilding of key spots with the creation of a pollinator meadow and the planting of important native species that will encourage its use as a wildlife corridor. These will enrich and provide supportive ecosystem services to community activities such as communal gardens, as well as safe and healthy naturalized park and family recreational areas.
Our plan is to build a community stewardship approach to cooperative landscape mitigation that could be used as a model within the City of Ottawa to ecologically enhance other municipal and private parcels of land.
