HIKE WITH CVC TO CELEBRATE 10 YEARS PROTECTING THE OAK RIDGES MORAINE
To celebrate a decade of protecting the Oak Ridges Moraine, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) will host a four kilometre interpretive walk on Sunday, June 3, along the Caledon Trailway beginning at Ken Whillans Resource Management Area (KWRMA) at 1:30 p.m.
The walk begins near the most western point of the Oak Ridges Moraine and highlights natural and cultural features found in this area. Spanning more than 160 kilometers from the Trent River (in the east) to the Niagara Escarpment (in the west), the Oak Ridges Moraine is a 12,000-year-old remnant of the last ice age and the source of 65 major streams or rivers.
Dubbed the “rain barrel” of Southern Ontario, the permeable sands and gravels of the Oak Ridges Moraine absorb and collect precipitation, storing it naturally underground, creating a renewable supply of drinking water for the Greater Toronto Area. To register, click here.
