Learn About Ottawa Wildlife
Meet some of Ottawa's common urban wildlife! These free resources are great for classrooms case studies and lesson plans, community groups, and individuals to learn more about native species in our area and how to live in harmony with them. When we understand each species' needs and behaviour, we can work to better co-exist with them.
Here at the OCWC, we want to help people of all ages better understand and appreciate wildlife and to protect wildlife and their habitat, and this includes beavers and wetlands!
Beavers are critical to wetland creation, maintenance, and even restoration! Download and print our wetlands poster to share in your community to raise awareness about this critical ecosystem and keystone species!
