Ecology and Management of Lygus Plant Bugs

Ottawa, Canada

Welcome to Ottawa !

Nestled at the junction of three picturesque rivers, Ottawa is considered one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. The city also borders the province of Québec, creating a dynamic cultural milieu in which both French and English cultures are deeply rooted. The result is a truly cosmopolitain experience-North American city with a distinctly European charm and flair. Ottawa presents visitors with a wide selection of sightseeing and outdoor leisure options. In fact with more than a dozen national museums and galleries-and full calendar of festivals and activities-Canadas Capital Region has something for everyone.
The seat of Canada’s federal government, Ottawa is a major centre for the visual and performing arts. Yet the city retains the accessibility, atmosphere and charm of a smaller centre—rich in wide-open green spaces, parks and wilderness areas.

Winterlude, North America's greatest winter festival has something for everyone, young and old alike. Come and skate on the Rideau Canal Skateway, the world's longest skating rink. Marvel at numerous snow and ice sculptures that are displayed on many sites around the Capital. Jacques-Cartier Park in Gatineau becomes a paradise for family fun in the snow, with slides, games, and horse-drawn sleigh rides. With all this and more, Winterlude is simply irresisteble!
