The Mer Bleue Bog in Ottawa is one of the most outstanding natural features of the Greenbelt. The 3,500-hectare conservation area has a northern ecosystem that is more typical of the Arctic than of the Ottawa Valley.
The NCC has teamed up with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority to design and construct a wetland in the headwaters of Black Rapids Creek, located in the Greenbelt. The wetland will fulfill the following functions: improve water quality, provide rare wetland habitat along the Black Rapids Creek system, increase overall biodiversity.
