Geoheritage Day is an annual event that highlights spectacular geological sites in and around the National Capital. Volunteers from Carleton University’s Department of Earth Sciences and the Ottawa-Gatineau Geoheritage Project are on hand at featured parks and green-spaces to explain how geological processes have shaped the regional landscape.
If you are a user of Hogs Back Park, please see this message Parks Canada recently sent:
"November 28, 2018 – This week, the contractor for the Hogs Back Dam and Fixed Bridge rehabilitation project will begin installing the cofferdam on the south side of the dam. This work requires the movement of heavy machinery across the multi-use pathway next to the staging area, southeast of the dam. In order to preserve public safety, the contractor will utilize flagstaff to control pedestrian traffic when heavy machinery is crossing. Pedestrians can expect brief intermittent delays during these times."
