Represent the Mooney’s Bay Neighbourhood!

February 9th, 2020 Comments off

If you live in Ottawa Mooney’s Bay neighbourhood, you have the opportunity to get active in your community. 

The Riverside Park Community Association has a vacancy for the Riverside Park West Area. Our association gives voice to local residents and works to improve our neighbourhood through advocacy and social events.

Our community association is run by dedicated volunteers, who hold monthly public meetings to discuss community concerns, meet with our city councillor and coordinate community-run initiatives, like traffic calming, family-friendly events, and community skating rinks.

This interim position is a great way to give community involvement a try. The term of office will begin in March and end in October, when an election can be held for a two-year term of office. Read more about this position in the RPCA Bylaws, Articles 5 and 10.

Priority will be given to candidates who live in the Riverside Park West area, but if none come forward, a candidate from elsewhere in the Riverside Park neighbourhood can be elected.

The election will take place at the RPCA Board of Directors meeting on March 4, starting at 7:00 p.m. Candidates simply need to submit a short statement of interest: president@riversidepark.ca

Living with Coyotes – Speaker, Feb. 6

February 3rd, 2020 Comments off

The City will be hosting its 15th Wildlife Speaker Series event on the evening of February 6, at Ottawa City Hall.  The topic is “Living with Coyotes” and the guest speaker will be Dr. Stan Gehrt from The Ohio State University.  He was the presenter at the city’s very first Wildlife Speaker Series event in February 2014, giving residents a fascinating look into how coyotes can coexist with people in a variety of urban and suburban settings. At the next session, we will hear about his ongoing 20-year study of the coyotes living in and around the City of Chicago.

Additional information about this event is available on the City’s web page:

Urban Coyotes: Be Mindful, Not Alarmed

January 6th, 2020 Comments off

Urban Coyotes are not uncommon in Ottawa, and they should not cause alarm. Especially at this time of year and in neigbhourhoods close to the Green Belt, coyotes can wander close to residences in search of food. They will not harm humans but can be a threat to pets, especially smaller ones.

If you see a coyote in your neighbourhood, contact the City or the National Capital Commission to report the sighting. The information retrieved from the sighting reports may be helpful to the NCC, MNR and the City in future to help identify areas of the City where public awareness may be beneficial.

NCC Coyote Sightings Line:  613-239-5000

NCC Emergency:  613-239-5353

If you feel that the coyote is an imminent threat, please contact Ottawa Police Service at 9-1-1 or 613-236-1222.
