Guides the preservation and use of Canada’s Capital Greenbelt.
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.

Farms in the Greenbelt are a symbol of Canada’s rural traditions, and they provide an example of how to practise viable and diverse agriculture in a near-urban setting. The Greenbelt also ensures that there is a space in Ottawa where farming can supply part of local food needs.
The Greenbelt is an excellent spot for a nature hike!
