Event description

Description

“Just living is not enough”, said the butterfly, “One must have freedom, sunshine and a little flower” - Hans Christian Anderson

It’s not quite that simple but the little flowers help. At Hawk Cliff we have created an accessible native wildflower garden. Kim McCabe, landscape designer, will explain how the Auzins Wildflower Garden was designed and created. Participants will learn how to select and grow native wildflowers that nurture our birds, butterflies and wildlife in Southwestern Ontario. Afterwards there will be a leisurely walk to view the flowers and butterflies in the nearby meadows in the Hawk Cliff nature reserve.

How to get there:

From London (approx 40 mins) take Highway 401 west to Colonel Talbot Dr (Highway 4) proceed south on Colonel Talbot which becomes Sunset Rd. Approaching St. Thomas at the roundabout, take the first exit right on Sunset Rd towards Port Stanley. Continue south on Sunset Rd/Hwy 4 for 6km to the John Wise Line where you turn left and go east for 2.1 km to Fairview Road. Turn right to go south on Fairview Rd for 6.7 km which becomes Hawks Cliff Rd at the Dexter Line. Continue south about 1km and watch for the parking area with the green gate and the Thames Talbot Land Trust sign for Hawk Cliff Woods.
