As you walk along the trail, do you ever stop to wonder how the forest you are travelling through evolves over time? Would you like to know more about the particular tree species we will identify, and how their growth has been affected by changes to the climate and human intervention?

This is your chance to delve into the complexities of forest ecology with the assistance of our knowledgeable guide, Adam Brylowski, a staff ecologist with the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

Please dress for the weather, and along with your curiosity, we suggest a hot drink, water and lunch or snack. End time and the distance we'll travel are estimates, depending on weather and trail conditions. NOTE: Icers are strongly suggested, as well as hiking poles that will be required for at least one short, steep hill we’ll need to climb.

This hike is brought to you by the TBTC’s Biodiversity Team, represented by George Lennon and Janet Patterson. We endeavour to promote the critical role we can all play in protecting and conserving the Niagara Escarpment.

Limit of 10 participants
