The Bridge-to-Bridge Reforestation Group, a collection of Old Ottawa South residents, has been planting and maintaining trees for more than a dozen years in the area between Bronson Avenue and Canal Woods Terrace. Many residents have remarked on the well-treed area south of the Bronson Bridge which comprises a healthy mix of trees including several varieties of spruce and pine as well as cedar, red oak, honey locust, and two progeny of the maple tree for which the Maple Leaf Forever was written. As an unintended acknowledgement of the group’s reforestation efforts, the neighbouring street, Bronson Place, was renamed Canal Woods Terrace.
Important: You must pre-register to receive Zoom invitation details and AGM materials. Details below.
OSCA’s Annual General Meeting is more than a legal requirement. The AGM has traditionally been a welcome opportunity to gather in the Firehall in the springtime as a community, hear what our Old Ottawa South Community Association has been doing for us over the preceding year, and share ideas for the coming year. OSCA’s AGM is among the many things disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Once again, organizing OSCA’s traditional in-person AGM has been complicated by health guidelines, government regulations and practical considerations, all relating to Covid-19.
