Speaker Series : Peninsula Bruce Trail Club presents "A Ribbon of Wilderness For Everyone, Forever!"
A Ribbon of Wilderness For Everyone, Forever!
Imagine pristine turquoise waters, rugged hiking, sights and sounds of rare species of birds, animals, wide plants and flowers. The Bruce Trail! It’s the longest and oldest footpath in Canada, and it’s right in your “backyard”.
Join us for a “virtual” tour of the Bruce Trail and learn about its purpose. Don McIlraith, a previous land stewardship director for Peninsula Bruce Trail Club and Marg Glendon, Peninsula Club Member will guide us through the role and responsibility of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, as well as showcasing beautiful photos of the rugged and natural beauty of the Peninsula Section of the Bruce Trail.
Barrow Bay Cliffs Nature Reserve is the most recent land conservation initiative. It will preserve talus communities which support ancient white cedars (some 1000 years old), protect habitats for rare species of birds, Black Bear, Massassauga Rattlesnake, bats and many exceptional varieties of fern, fungi and flowers.
Motivate yourself to hike the Bruce Trail by hearing stories of hiking that changed everyday peoples’ lives. Learn how you can volunteer with a local Bruce Trail Conservancy Club, and help to conserve this beautiful ribbon of wilderness.
