Eco-Focused Riverview Park Jane’s Walk

OSEAN invites you to join us for an eco-focused walk in Ottawa’s Riverview Park neighbourhood. Get inspired with ways you can reduce your carbon footprint and support the local environment.

  • Date: Saturday May 6
  • Time: 10 am (tbc)
  • Registration: Please reserve your spot at Jane’s Walk Ottawa (registration opens April 24)

About the walk:
2 hour (2 km) tour starting from and ending at Riverview Alternative School, 260 Knox Crescent. We will be visiting a home with a ground source heat pump, then walking to a pollinator garden. The final visit is to a home with solar panels. We will be talking to the homeowners and gardener who will share their knowledge and experience in hopes of inspiring others to embrace more sustainable practices. Questions will be welcome. 

Accessibility: please note there are some stairs along the route.
