The Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation (ODBF) proudly supports Ecology Ottawa with a $1,000 donation as part of the ODBF’s ongoing support of Ecology Ottawa’s Tree Ottawa campaign! These funds will go toward the distribution of trees to be planted throughout the National Capital Region.
“Our partnership with Ecology Ottawa helps towards ensuring that our Foundation and our Festivals are a net benefit to the environment,” says Antony Cooper, Director of Operations. “Funding the planting of trees through recycling cans creates a nice synergy between our various green initiatives.”
“Ecology Ottawa is a local, grassroots, volunteer-driven organization working to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada. The ongoing partnership between Ecology Ottawa, the Foundation and the Festival not only significantly promotes Tree Ottawa’s outreach effort, but also directly contributes to the Million Tree Initiative.” Vi Bui, Ecology Ottawa.
About Ecology Ottawa’s Tree Ottawa
Tree Ottawa is a community-centred initiative for the Nation’s Capital to dramatically increase the scale and ecological diversity of the urban and rural tree canopy in Ottawa. Tree Ottawa is building a greener community by engaging residents, private companies and public organizations in active efforts to protect, plant and celebrate trees in neighborhoods and green spaces.
Ecology Ottawa is a local, grassroots, volunteer-driven organization working to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada. Their Tree Ottawa campaign aims to not only plant a million trees in Ottawa to help the city’s greenspace recover from the Emerald Ash Borer crisis, but also to advocate for better policy to protect our urban forest.
