Saturday, October 17, 2015 - Outing to Northumberland Land Trust McEwan Property.

Leader: John Geale. The property is a tract of rolling wooded kame forest and open fields directly adjacent to the Ganaraska Forest. It also contains some prairie elements. The habitats include meadows, Oak Pine Forest, White Cedar Coniferous Forest, a birch-poplar mixed swamp, a creek and a rich pond. The property directly abuts the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority lands to the west, and contributes to forest interior conditions on surrounding lands, and includes a headwater tributary of the Ganaraska River. The area around the property is known to have the threatened Eastern Hognose snake. Areas of appropriate habitat are present on this property for this species. The Oak Ridges Moraine Trail runs along the concession road along the south end of the property. Meet at the corner of Hope 10th Line and Walker Rd at 9:00 a.m.

Take Hwy. 401 to exit #461 and turn north on County Rd 10, or, from Port Hope, take Toronto Street North. Drive through Canton, Perrytown and Garden Hill to the 10th Line. Turn left (west) and continue under an old railway bridge until you come to a sharp left corner where the 10th Line meets Walker Road. Park in the area of this corner.
