    Pace: Medium – 3 to 4 km/hr
    Terrain: Easy – Mostly flat and usually good footing

    Description

    he Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is a unique natural area. The area is 414 acres in size and is located at the headwaters of the Spencer Creek Watershed. The area is an important groundwater recharge area and is considered a provincially significant wetland.

    An abandoned quarry at the site was rehabilitated, resulting in the creation of a rare type of wetland. Environmental improvements to the area resulting from the restoration are significant and include the expansion of a fen plant community — the rarest form of wetland in Ontario — creation of additional habitat for rare plants and animals already in the area, a new breeding area for leopard frogs, snakes, and a variety of small mammals, such as groundhogs, foxes and bats. A mix of coniferous and deciduous trees will create a canopy that, over time, will provide valuable shelter for wintering birds and mammals. The area contains a trail system and interpretive panels.
