Celebrate spring and enjoy a few hours in nature with members of the South Shore Joint Initiative. The Canadian Nature Federation and Bird Studies Canada designated The County as an important global birding area (IBA) in 1998.
We will walk along Helmer Rd. from County Rd 13 and first explore a conservation project in the making.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Brodeur project is immediately west of the Ostrander Point Crown Land Block. NCC has signed an agreement to purchase this property and is currently raising funds to conserve this private property in perpetuity.
Passing through the Crown Land Block we will reach NCC’s newly acquired Hudgin-Rose property on the eastern side. This approximately 6-7 km walk will give us an opportunity to investigate parts of an exciting future conservation project, the Crown Land Block and the Hudgin-Rose property. The area hosts unique butterflies and birds and the iconic Blanding’s Turtle.
Bring water and snacks. Washroom facilities will be provided.
