“Wildlife” isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Ottawa, but our city is home to hundreds of species.
The City of Ottawa is hosting Wildlife and a Liveable City on Monday, Mar. 2, 2015 at City Hall. There’s an “environment trade show” starting at 6 p.m., and a panel discussion on cities and wildlife conservation and co-existence at 7:30 p.m.
Speakers include David Chernushenko, city councillor and environment committee chair; Janet Mason, Ottawa Stewardship Council; and Brenda Van Sleeuwen, Nature Conservancy of Canada.
The event coincides with World Wildlife Day, celebrated on March 3.
