Upper Ottawa Valley Nature Club

Town: Deep River

Ontario Nature Region: Ontario East

The club is centred around the communities of Deep River and Chalk River, where agricultural land ends and Shield country begins. We lie between the Ottawa River and Algonquin Provincial park, in a fringe zone that suffers from intensive logging and hunting, but which features large federal preserves to the east (Atomic Energy, Base Petawawa and the Research Forest). Being a transition zone, with many different habitats, the area is rich in varieties of life. Migratory birds follow the Ottawa River and warblers are especially numerous. Members spearheaded the purchase of the 400-hectare Four Seasons preserve on the edge of Deep River, thereby maintaining a system of trails, wetlands, high-quality forest, and two kilometers of undeveloped Ottawa River shoreline. The structure of the club is informal activities are organized on an ad hoc basis.
