The Fletcher Wildlife Garden, a long-term project of the Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club, is located on a site that is only minutes from the centre of Ottawa. Besides being readily accessible to naturalists, gardeners, schoolchildren, and other residents of the city and its suburbs, the FWG site encompasses a variety of natural habitats. Volunteers are working to restore and enhance these and other areas to provide a wide range of potential homes for local wildlife.
Loss of natural spaces is a major factor in the decline of many plant, bird and animal species. Our goal is to encourage as many people as possible to create or restore natural landscapes on their urban or rural property. Our Interpretive Centre contains information on conservation issues and regional natural history. Behind the centre is our Backyard Garden designed to show how anyone can transform their own garden into one that is wildlife friendly.
The FWG is managed by a committee of the Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club. The committee meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. in the Interpretive Centre at the garden. Observers are welcome!
