Check out our new initiative … GREENING HINTONBURG TOGETHER!

As you might know, Hintonburg is one of the neighbourhoods with the lowest amounts of tree coverage in Ottawa. In fact, wile the City of Ottawa’s goal is 40% tree canopy coverage within each area of the city, Hintonburg only had 19% canopy coverage as of 2016 … and it keeps shrinking.

Prompted by our lack of trees, bushes, and other native species, the HCA is undertaking a big initiative to green the neighbourhood with all of you. We’ve already have heard from many residents that they want to bring more biodiversity, native species, and the tree canopy so here we go!

YOU can make a difference by planting trees, shrubs, and/or flowers.

Check out our new webpage for Greening Hintonburg.

We’ve also created information sheets with LOTS of helpful tips and resources.

You can participate in greening Hintonburg no matter how much land you have.

Check out our info sheets and sign up for our HCA e-newsletter below for more info.

AND — Please reach out to us if you would like to help with this initiative. We’ve got a great team but could use even more volunteers. Email (subject: environment committee).
