Did you know the Greenspace Alliance was founded in October 1997? To celebrate twenty years of advocacy for the preservation and protection of greenspace in Ottawa-Gatineau, we are planning a little soirée on Thursday, October 26, from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M. It will be held at the Domaine de la Ferme Moore, one of the NCC’s 2017 Confederation Pavilions, located at 670 Blvd Alexandre-Taché in Gatineau, just across the Champlain Bridge.


In addition to refreshments and a birthday cake, entertainment will be provided in the form of a song circle, in which local musicians, playing acoustic instruments, will take turns singing songs, in many genres, that somehow touch on nature and the environment. Please RSVP to pjohanis@rogers.com if you think you can join us.
