By Vito Pilieci, Ottawa Citizen, July 20, 2018

The Ottawa Humane Society will partner with Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization on Sunday to host a wildlife awareness event for newcomers to Canada.

The event aims to teach newcomers to Canada about this country’s wildlife, including an urban wildlife presentation to describe various animals that exist in and around Canadian cities. Crafts to explain the habits of nesting birds and attendees will be offered a “how to” guide to wildlife that they can take with them. The event will take place on Sunday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. at the Carleton Heights Community Centre on Apeldoorn Avenue. It will be lead by Stephanie Millar, coordinator of humane education at the Ottawa Humane Society.
