The Fletcher Wildlife Garden turned 20 in 2010!

The Fletcher Wildlife Garden (FWG) was initiated in 1990 on a 6 hectare site on the Central Experimental Farm located in the middle of Ottawa, close to downtown. It is adjacent to the Dominion Arboretum and close to the Rideau Canal. our goal is to encourage as many people as possible to create or restore natural landscapes on their urban or rural property for the benefit of wildlife and the environment.

The FWG site contains a variety of natural habitats which have been restored and enhanced over time. Ongoing maintenance ensures that these habitats provide a wide range of potential homes for regional wildlife.

For more information about the FWG, please see Fletcher Wildlife Garden. You'll find a wealth of information about wildlife, gardening with wildlife in mind, gardening with native plants, and much more.
