We are having a membership drive in May, and are asking for volunteers to canvass their streets to collect annual membership dues and to encourage non-members to join the RPCA.  A new iniative this year allows all RPCA members a  5% discount at Rona, who will in turn donate 5% of the purchase to the RPCA.

Please email Heather Dunlop hdunlop@rogers.com and advise her what  street(s) you would be willing to canvass.  By May we may have some nice spring weather, and it will give you an opportunity to get out and say hello to your neighbours who have hibernating all winter!

Russell Heights Tree Replacement Fundraiser

Categories: Community Notices

Students on the Leading Edge is a grade 7/8 class at Vincent Massey that engages in a community project every year. With the recent removal of over 75 ash trees in the Russell Heights community, the students decided to reverse this impact by replanting new trees. We are working with Artistic Landscaping and want to fundraise enough for 20 maple trees. Students have researched this idea from having Ecology Ottawa to determine how the naturalization process should take place to engaging in writing grants for support.
