Mud Lake Biodiversity Project




The goal of the Mud Lake Biodiversity Project website is to have an easily accessed pictoral catalogue of all organisms that inhabit or otherwise pass through Mud Lake. We hope to eventually have ALL organisms catalogued, from the smallest bacterium to the largest tree.

The Britannia Conservation Area - "Mud Lake" - is an undeveloped patch of land within Ottawa, Ontario set aside as a nature preserve and maintained by the National Capital Commission. A path encircles the lake, taking visitors through various distinct biomes.

There are currently: 281 species catalogued in this website.
