Wesley Clover Parks is one of the major initiatives undertaken by the Wesley Clover Foundation. We are a local, not-for-profit outdoor recreation and learning hub dedicated to promoting health and education in the immediate and extended communities. Wesley Clover Parks is also committed to giving back to our community. Learn more about some of our initiatives below.
3rd Kanata Scouts Bat Box Unveiling
On Tuesday, September 18th a group from 3rd Kanata Scouts hosted a Bat Box unveiling ceremony at the Wesley Clover Parks Campground as part of their eldest Beaver Scouts' (aged 7 to 8) project to earn their Northern Star Award. The Beaver Scouts worked the entire summer to build the bat box themselves, following the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s bat box outlines. By successfully completing this project this group of Beaver Scouts were awarded a certificate, badge, and graduated to Cubs!
Bats are vital to the health of our environment as they work each night eating insects, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds that grow into new plants and trees. Bat houses such as this one will offer a space for roosting during the spring and having pups over the summer, giving pups a chance for survival. We would like to thank the 3rd Kanata Scouts for choosing Wesley Clover Parks as the home for their bat box!
Our Partnership with the Ottawa Senators Foundation
In 2016 Wesley Clover Parks partnered with Magic of Lights to bring a new holiday tradition to Ottawa residents and visitors while raising funds for the Ottawa Senators Foundation. Since then we have welcomed thousands of visitors to Magic of Lights and raised over $75,000 for the Ottawa Senators Foundation!
On Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 the Ottawa Senators announced a $400,000 investment in their 2018 Sens Campership program that will offer thousands of kids the opportunity to experience summer camp. We are so proud to partner with such a wonderful organization and look forward to continuing to support this great cause in the future! Click here to read more about this exciting announcement.
