    Description

    Join Carolyn Zanchetta, HNC Stewardship & Education Coordinator on a gentle walk around Hamilton Cemetery. Discover the unique world of lichen and what it can tell us about air quality. Often undetected and unassuming, lichen can be found growing anywhere that will stay still long enough. Throughout Hamilton we can see crustose lichen coating park benches, colourful foliose lichen peeling up off tree trunks, squamulose lichen at the base of an old tree, or even fruiticose lichen stretching off the branches. As they are sensitive to pollutants, they can also tell us a lot about the air quality where they grow, or simply by their presence or absence. We’ll look for these often overlooked organisms. Meet at Dundurn Castle parking lot by the stop lights at far end.

    Bring snacks and water and dress warm as will be making several stops to look at lichen.  This is a GENTLE WALK so not for those looking for a workout.  Might be some mud or icy so wear good boots and bring icers and poles if you have them.

    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.
