Ottawa Urban Wild Tours is a volunteer-run Transition Ottawa initiative whose primary mandate is to educate the general public about the presence of the natural world in the urban environment. We aim to have these events accessible; the tours are free and the tours sites can be reached by public transportation, by foot or by bike. We team up with other volunteers who are biologists, naturalists and nature lovers in our community to share their knowledge with others in the city.
We are ever grateful to our team of volunteers - our amazing tour guides, our loyal posterers (Guy, Andrew and Judi) as well as our enthusiastic poster designer (Marie Primeau-Maurice). These tours would simply not be possible without our volunteers.
