Passport to Nature: Shoreline Exploration
Sun, 16 July 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
This trip will look at aquatic and terrestrial features associated with this unique property. The Head River winds its way through the property and is the route that will be taken to get to the 35ha site. The aquatic life within the river and along the shoreline will be reviewed as well as the abundant bird life. This includes kingfishers and the Northern Waterthrush, a specialized warbler associated with wet woods. During Spring, the Head River overflows into the property, but in the summer months, the river flow is slower giving us the opportunity to paddle in both directions enhancing our observational capabilities of the property.
From the village of Sebright, travel east and north on Monck Road for approximately 3 km; turn left on Young Street and follow to the end. Canoes can be put on the river to the right; follow downstream and Conservancy signs mark the beginning of the reserve. Alternately, access Young Lake from the Dalton Community Centre; a Conservancy sign marks the southern edge of the Waterthrush Woods property.
