Watch an owl fly silently to a perch and learn how they manage to be so quiet. Discover special places along the Rideau River that shelter birds, and why they need our protection. Hear storytellers share a bird’s migration journey and other fascinating bird tales.

Activities include guided bird-watching walks, a nature scavenger hunt and games. Trained hawks and owls will be part of a predatory bird demonstration, and local groups will be on hand to share more information about the incredible lives of birds and how we can help them.

NCC – Youth Engagement in City Building

As we plan for the future of the Capital, we must not forget to include the voices of millennials and Generation Z. After all, they will be the ones implementing these plans!

At our next Capital Urbanism Lab on April 6, we’ll explore how various groups are engaging youth in city building to strengthen our communities. Our guest speakers will address how they empower youth to take action on local issues, such as housing, transportation and community development.

More information available on the NCC Website.

Culture Days 2016 is almost here!

Culture Days is almost here, and this year we’d like to see the Riverside South Community Association join the movement with your own activities. The work you do is important and Culture Days provides a great opportunity to celebrate your community.

Culture Days is the largest annual celebration and participation initiative undertaken by the arts and cultural community in Canadian History. In 2015, over 2 million Canadians participated in more than 7,500 free arts and cultural activities in nearly 900 cities and towns. The seventh annual Culture Days will take place September 30, October 1 & 2, 2016, and we want you to be involved!

Join the movement by organizing a Culture Days event in your community. Almost any activity can be presented during Culture Days, as long as they are free, participatory, take place on the Culture Days weekend and are registered online at culturedays.ca. Check out our 1-page invitation for all the details.

If you’re unsure how you can play a role in Culture Days or you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Hana. For more tips and ideas, you can also visit the Resources Section on the Culture Days website and subscribe to the newsletter.
