Long Island Park Interpretive Panels
What Is It?
In 2012, the MCPRA applied for and received a grant from the City of Ottawa Community Environmental Projects Grants Program to develop, design, and install five interpretive panels in Long Island park that explain its history, diverse ecology, and the importance of maintaining natural shorelines.

Progress to Date?
The panels were installed in the spring of 2014 and continue to be enjoyed by local residents, nearby school children, and visitors to Long Island Park.
Community experts helped develop content, and community volunteers installed the panels. The Team included Lori Gadzala, Susan Hale, Viv Mitchell, Anne Robinson, Noel Norenius and Rod Corbett.
Thanks to the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority for providing graphic design. Click on the panels below for larger images, or better yet, go visit them in person!
