Event: Celebrating Two Old Ottawa Maples

Celebrating Two Old Ottawa Maples

Richard Deadman and his family invite you to join them in their yard at 102 Springhurst Avenue in Old Ottawa South to celebrate two maples at risk of falling to Regional Group’s “Greystone Village” (see CTV story). They are located near the Rideau River on the northern edge of the former Oblates Missionary site, a property that will see 916 condos and townhouses go up in the next few years.

Starting at 1:30 PM this Sunday, August 5, 2018, the Ottawa naturalist Owen Clarkin will talk about the features and ecology of the sugar maple, and the two trees at risk. Tree activists will outline efforts to map the lost trees of Ottawa and steps needed to correct the poor record of tree protection in the City of Ottawa. By 2:15 the event will move down Springhurst Avenue to the Rideau River Nature Trail, concluding by 3 pm.

Join the celebration of what is and could remain a heritage green space in a residential neighbourhood.
