Fletcher Wildlife Garden

Prince of Wales at Cow Lane, Ottawa, Ontario 45.3871° N, 75.7032° W

This volunteer-maintained site contains perennial beds of hardy local plants; a pond that attracts water fowl, insects and amphibians; a meadow planted with flowers specifically to attract and nurture butterflies; and several kilometres of maintained walking trails through trees, shrubs and indigenous plants that support a wide variety of small animals, birds, insects and reptiles. A project to attract pollinators, an insect hotel and story boards along our trails contribute to our mandate of educating the public. This oasis in the city is popular with birders, young and old naturalists, painters and photographers, and anyone looking to enjoy a casual walk in a natural setting.
NOTE: Dogs on leash welcome.
