CANCELLED due to rain.  Will be reschedule for August.   Please keep your eyes on calendar.  Join wetlands expert Bruce Mackenzie, while we visit a lesser known area of Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve which is the north of main entrance.  We will experience stories that begin at the foot of the Galt Moraine. A restored gravel pit, large cold water springs that are sources of Spencer Creek, a cedar swamp forest and a hemlock dominated woodlot. Taking us through time from the glaciers to today.  We will see how nature reacts and heals.  This is leisurely with a number of stops. Bring hiking boots that can take some wet and be prepared for some uneven footing with grass and roots as this is a little used section.  Bring water, snacks and your own personal first aid. There are no facilities here.

Parking is on the road Concession Rd 7, approximately 1 km north of Gore Rd, north of Fletcher Creek Reserve Parking lot.  From Hamilton go north on highway 6 and turn left (west) on Gore Road which is north of Freelton.  Contact hike leader Bron for more information or text on day of to cancel 905-334-4013
