a marathon before.” After he finished running in Fredericton, Willett, with the help of his buddy Charles, who lives over in Barrie, decided to keep on

On a hot Friday morning just outside of L’Orignal, JimWillett trots strong and stea- dy along the gravelled edge of County Road 17. He’s westbound for Ottawa and expects to get there in time to keep on running in the annual OttawaMarathon over theMay 29 weekend. “Just wanted to see the countryside,”Wil- lett said, taking a short break in his run for a brief interview about what he’s doing on the road. Not too far behind Willett is his buddy, Charles MacMurchy, riding along on a mountain bike loaded downwith saddlebags filled with supplies. MacMurchy is the “sup- port crew” for this one-man road-running odyssey, which began in New Brunswick not long after Willett finished running the annual Fredericton Marathon. By inclinination, Willett is an ultramara- thoner, whichmeans he runs in events where theminimumcontinuous distance before he stops is 50 kilometres. The maximum for a marathon is 42 kilometres. Some ultrama- rathons are 100 kilometres or more andmay take place over a two- or three-day period. “I’ve run all over the world,” saidWillett, who hails from Newmarket ON. “I’ve done ultras on five continents. But I’d never run

BioBlitz in the Larose Forest

Naturalists and scientists are going on a blitzkrieg hunt in the Larose Forest at the start of June. The United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) and the Ottawa Field Naturalists Club are going partners on the Fourth An- nual BioBlitz in the Larose Forest. The June

3 event is a 24-hour exercise during which naturalists and scientists work together to identify as many species as possible living within a particular habitat area.The project goal is to provide up-to-date and detailed information on the existing biodiversity with a section of the forest along with updating the species inventory database for future studies. Experts from the naturalists club, the SouthNation Conservation Authority (SNC), les Mycologues amateurs de l’Outaouais, and Carleton University will scour a section of the forest bordered by St-Félix Road and the Clarence-Cambridge Boundary Road on the north and south and by Concession 9 and Concession 10 on the east and west sides.The BioBlitz runs from6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Results will go into databases on local plant and animal diversity and help with future land usemanagement planning deci- sions and also dealing with any potential rare or species-at-risk concerns for the Larose Forest. A complete report and results of the event will appear later in the year on the UCPR and Ottawa Field Naturalists Club websites, and the information will also be available through the Ministry of Natural Resources’ Natural Heritage Information Centre (NHIC). Potential volunteers for the bi BioBlitz who have expertise in natural history should contact Manon Besner at mbesner@pres-
