“The Champlain Oaks” is a remnant of the original oak forest located on both sides of the Ottawa River between Chaudière Falls and Deschênes Rapids. With historical connections to an Algonquin village, what is ed early French exploration of Canada, malady the logging magnate James Skead, and recent community history, “The Champlain Oaks” are a significant expression of a unique interaction between nature and human settlement. As detailed in this report from three Community Associations, they are worth celebrating and protecting.
