Thanks to provincial funding, hard work and volunteer hours, we now enjoy a new addition at the Silver Creek Conservation Area. One hundred twenty metre boardwalk was built to protect the pond’s sensitive shoreline from trail widening and soil compaction. A 25 metre U-shaped dock was also added to allow for access to the pond for the Silver Creek Education Centre’s pond dipping studies. In order to protect the threatened amphibians that live here and in the surrounding area this project became a necessity. Wildlife viewing is now safer for the animals and the visitors.
