Snapping turtle (Fletcher Wildlife Garden)

The Fletcher Wildlife Garden (FWG) was initiated in 1990 on a 6 hectare site on the Central Experimental Farm located in the middle of Ottawa, close to downtown. It is adjacent to the Dominion Arboretum and close to the Rideau Canal. our goal is to encourage as many people as possible to create or restore natural landscapes on their urban or rural property for the benefit of wildlife and the environment.

Happy Canada Day!

One of the best things about Canada is that the country is home to an incredibly immense array of habitats, plants and wildlife. You could make a hundred posts about Canada’s nature, covering everything from the Northwest Territories tundra, to a southern Ontario wetland, to the grasslands of Saskatchewan, to tidal pools in the Maritimes, to west coast rainforests in British Columbia, and you still wouldn’t cover even half of it!

Here’s a selection of Canadian critters I’ve been lucky enough to see over the past few years. Specifics under the cut!

Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
