Guided interpretive Walks
Our 30 acres of trails are open to the public by appointment, we can provide a knowledgeable guide who can provide information on some of the many woodland flowers and shrubs, our managed forest plan, as well as talk about the topography and glacial deposits that make our property so interesting. Those that wish can walk the trails on their own, but we recommend that the first time you visit you request a guided tour so as not to miss any of the wonderful sights to be seen.
We are located just 20km south of Owen Sound, Ontario, about a 1 hour drive from Kitchener or 2 hour drive from Toronto, London or Barrie.
The best time to visit is in the spring when each week a new selection of wildflowers emerges to catch the sunlight filtering through the budding trees. As the trees leaf out and the sunlight is further reduced on the forest floor the undergrowth turns green and provides hiding spots for the many birds and animals that call our bush home. In the fall as the leaves turn colour and gradually fall from the trees other flowers emerge and the fruit of the spring flowers turn colour and add to the display.
So no matter what time you visit it is a pleasant afternoons stroll through the woods. Do come and see, we love to meet fellow nature enthusiasts whether knowledgeable or simply interested. We cannot in good faith keep this unique and natural property all to ourselves.
Open April 15th to Oct 15th 8am to 4 pm by appointment only. Entrance by Donation.
