National Capital Greenbelt (National Capital Commission)
Whether you’re interested in wildlife, weird and wonderful plants, wetlands, or waxing your skis, the Greenbelt has something for you. This is nature at its most accessible — a 20,000-hectare band of green stretching right through Ottawa from east to west. It’s a great place to enjoy outdoor recreation and learn about the natural world. With its diversity of natural ecosystems, rural landscapes and heritage sites, the Greenbelt is also a fascinating destination for educational field trips.
