This wonderful weekend to discover the city is happening on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8, 2016.
Jane’s Walk Ottawa-Gatineau is a weekend of walks that explore and create conversations around the history, culture, ecology, design, politics and communities of Ottawa.
The walks this year include edible plants in the city, the potential of Stittsville Main Street, the turtles of Petrie Island, an Indigenous perspective on Lansdowne Park, the Poets’ Pathway in the Sawmill Creek wetlands, the history of the Deschenes Rapids, the parking lots of Parliament Hill, the Ottawa tool and seed libraries, conservation in the Pinhey Sand Dunes, l’art et la nature sur l’Île-de-Hull, and many more. All walks are led by knowledgeable and engaging volunteers.
