History of the Fletcher Wildlife Garden in photos

The Fletcher Wildlife Garden began in 1990, on a 6 hectare site on the Central Experimental Farm, in the middle of Ottawa. The photos presented here show how the garden looked in the old days before the Amphibian Pond, before the New Woods, Hedgerow, Old Field, etc. The contrast between then and now is quite astounding! To illustrate this, some recent photos will be interspersed to show the differences that have occurred.

We are not sure who took these photographs, for they were in our archives. But I believe many of them were taken by Jeff Harrison and Peter Hall, the two founding members of the FWG. The old photos are digitized from slides and photos, so the quality of some is not always as good as it might be, although thanks to one of our volunteers, Al, some of the slides have been digitized and cleaned up very nicely.

Newly added photos are at the beginning. Please click on each image to enlarge.
