Get To Know Your Neighbourhood

Making residents, especially those new to a community, feel at home is the goal of three Get To Know Your Neighbourhood events being hosted by Oakvillegreen Conservation Association (OCA) this month.

“Oakville has many great natural spaces, trails and places to recreate but people living here, even some who’ve been here for several years, may not know about them,” says Karen Brock, OCA president.

“We want to give people a chance to meet their neighbours, learn about their community, let them ask questions and provide them with information that will help them feel at home,” she says.

At the one hour sessions, residents will be able to pick up information about parks and recreation, Conservation Halton, wildlife, landscaping with native plants and Town policies. As well they will learn about Oakville’s Natural Heritage System, which Brock calls Oakville’s “crown jewel — something that sets this Town apart from other Ontario municipalities”.

Everyone is welcome to these free events that will be held on three consecutive Thursdays in the Oakville and Trafalgar Rooms at Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Residents are encouraged to arrive by 7:30 p.m.
These events are being held as part of a partnership agreement with the Town of Oakville.

For more information please contact Liz Benneian, manager of Partnership Programs, OCA, at[masked] or email her at [masked]
