Discover the incredible variety of classic Carolinian species in Kopegaron Woods including trees, shrubs and spring ephemerals, or early woodland wildflowers.

Spring is an exciting time to explore forests in Windsor-Essex County as everything is waking up, and there is lots to see! This diverse plant life supports a variety of wildlife, and with luck we may see or hear some residents living in the forest!

Attendees should remember to dress for the weather. Boots are recommended. Some trail sections are on boardwalks, others are on the forest floor/trail. Standing water sections and mud are possible to encounter on this walk. Bring binoculars and your camera if you wish.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Tickets are $8 per person. Please pay in advance, we will not have a payment system or take cash payments on site.

Location: Kopegaron Woods and Conservation Area, Highway 3 East, just west of Wheatley. *There is no 911 address for this conservation area.

For more information, please contact Gina Pannunzio, Partnerships and Outreach Coordinator, gpannunzio@erca.org or 519-776-5209 ext. 245.
