Saturday, September 22 / 2018 SCANLON CREEK CONSERVATION AREA
Depart 6:30 a.m. from South Barrie GO station parking lot Paul Forde 58Forde@gmail.com Phone- 705 725 0750
This small but beautiful conservation area on the shore line of ancient Lake Algonquin is a nature loverís paradise
It is home to many species of birds and other fauna. Fall is an especially beautiful time of year in this oasis of woodland and wetland with colours starting to change and the fall migration is in full swing. It boasts a small pond and riparian habitat.
This walk is on well maintained park trails but some are on very steep hills. Down and up! People must be able to navigate this terrain. It is a few kilometres around the path.
Note: There are no washrooms along the trail and at a minimum this walk will take two full hours there and back. There are outhouses at the parking lot entrance. Wear good reliable hiking footwear and possibly a hiking pole for the hills.
If itís pouring rain at the GO station, we may cancel. If you wish to attend, it will be important to send me your cell number beforehand.
Drive is about 20 minutes to Scanlon Creek south on Yonge Street.. Parking at Scanlon Creek is $6 per car.
Dress for fall weather. Bring your own snacks and drinks. No dogs.
