Rockcliffe Park Garden Club: Owen Clarkin
Please join us for our September kickoff evening on Thursday, September 27 at 7:30 pm at the Rockcliffe Community Hall, featuring naturalist and chemist Owen Clarkin, the Chair of Conservation for the Ottawa Field Naturalist Club, a group that works to conserve Canada’s biological history and monitor existing species and species at risk. His love and knowledge of trees extends to shrubs and his topic will be the Shrubs of Eastern Ontario – how to identify them, plant them and make them part of your greenscape. Owen is a tree-loving activist and educator whose expertise is sought out by Friends of the Farm, for whom he leads Arboretum walks. Come share in our hospitality, and sit back and listen to a presentation that will open your eyes about the nature that surrounds you.
