Saturday, April 11, 2015, 10:00 am - Alderville First Nation Black Oak Savanna Ecology Centre.
Hosts - Willow Beach Field Naturalists.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for both WBFN and ON members to visit and learn more about Canada’s easternmost prairie - and one of the most endangered plant communities in Ontario. Located south of Rice Lake, on the eastern edge of the Oak Ridges Moraine, Alderville First Nation’s Black Oak Savanna/Tallgrass Prairie is the largest single remaining parcel of its kind in east central Ontario. Scientists refer to the Alderville Black Oak Savanna as "the Jewel". 

The afternoon hike we will be at Peter’s Woods Provincial Nature Reserve. This special area represents the sole-surviving Oak Ridges Moraine “old growth” forest in Ontario. A 0.8 km trail passes through an open field and circles the maple-beech forest.
