Volunteer Gardening, Habitat Preservation at Fletcher Wildlife Garden

Interested in local plants and wildlife? Enjoy working outdoors? Fletcher Wildlife Garden is looking for volunteers to plant, weed, and remove invasive species, particularly in our “Back Yard Garden.” The BYG is intended as a demonstration site to show gardeners in Ottawa what local plants can be used to attract and support butterflies, pollinators, and birds. Work in our “Butterfly Garden” involves planting and maintaining a variety of plants that attract and sustain butterflies and other pollinators.
Enjoy working in the outdoors with friendly people starting in May. Willingness to work with a team trumps lack of experience.
All activities start at our Interpretation Centre. Volunteers should dress for the weather and the work and bring their own water. The FWG is best reached by car or bicycle, as public transit is no longer available.
Just come on out, or check our website (http://www.ofnc.ca/fletcher.php) for further information. We can be reached by email at fletcher@ofnc.ca, but please give us at least a week to reply. NOTE: The gravel road to Fletcher Wildlife Garden is located off Prince of Wales Drive, south of the Arboretum. Look for the FWG sign opposite the parking lot for the Agriculture Museum. Currently there is no bus service along Prince of Wales.
