Everyone is welcome to join us at Maki House from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 14th, for an informative and engaging evening on current issues related to the greenbelt. We are fortunate to live in a neighbourhood surrounded by nature. A roster of guest speakers will discuss their respective areas of expertise in order to better preserve and protect the flora and fauna we cherish, as well as to keep our families safe and healthy this summer season.
- Dr. Manisha Kulkarni, Assistant Professor with the University of Ottawa’s School of Epidemiology and Public Health, will present her latest research on ticks and Lyme disease in our area.
- Donna Dubreuil, President, and Kate MacNeil, Executive Director with the Ottawa Carleton Wildlife Centre will discuss the greenbelt wetlands, including stresses on its health, plans for storm water management, and the wildlife corridor.
- Eric Lalande, Planner with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority will address erosion concerns for Stillwater Creek.
Supplementary resources related to these topics will be available at the meeting and online. As always, we will be streaming live on Facebook for those who are unable to join us in person.
