Guest leader Scott Peck, Director, Watershed Management Services, Hamilton Conservation Authority will lead us on a gentle walk on a level trail that overlooks wetlands.  Scott will make several stops along the trail and explain the history and progression of the Saltfleet CA project.  This has become a hotspot for birders but you don't need to bring binoculars as we won't be looking for birds this time!  Paid parking $8.00 per day but free with HCA membership pass.  More about Saltfleet CA https://conservationhamilton.ca/conservation-areas/saltfleet-conservation-area/    Hiking boots recommended.  Bring your own snack, sun filter, insect repellant, water and personal 1st aid kit.  No facilities.   Your questions about wetlands and conservation authorities role in water management are welcome.   Note that ticks are now active.  To learn more about ticks go to https://conservationhamilton.ca/ticks-and-lyme-disease/  Contact Bron at 905-334-4013 (text) or email brontreg@cogeco.ca.
