The City of Ottawa, the federal government and Ducks Unlimited Canada have teamed up with several private donors to purchase 178 hectares of the Carp Hills in the city's west end.

The acquisition will ensure the area, in the southern portion of the natural feature, "will remain pristine for wildlife and for people — now, and into the future," according to a news release from the city.

The news release also noted Ducks Unlimited and Friends of the Carp Hills, a group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the area, will manage the 178-hectare property.
