October 10, 2017 – Georgetown boasts a network of stunning ravines, like Hungry Hollow, that offer endless opportunities for residents to connect with nature. Credit Valley Conservation is hosting a free Fall Colours Guided Nature Walk in Hungry Hollow on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and residents are encouraged to attend and experience nature in their own community.
Ecology experts with Credit Valley Conservation will share their knowledge of Hungry Hollow and the unique habitats, ecosystems, and local wildlife of this distinctive landscape.
“Hungry Hollow is a gem,” said Karen Bannister, Senior Program Coordinator for Credit Valley Conservation. “This valley system is among the most environmentally-significant and biologically-diverse landscapes in Halton Hills and the surrounding area. Local residents are fortunate to have this unique natural setting so close to home.”
Hungry Hollow is a deep ravine that runs through Georgetown along a stretch of Silver Creek. The area is known for its high biodiversity and is recognized as a Centre for Biodiversity by Credit Valley Conservation.
“We can expect spectacular fall colours,” said Bannister. “The diversity of tree species in Hungry Hollow means there will be a wide range of colours on display.”
Free refreshments will be provided. This event runs rain or shine and attendees are asked to dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes and sunscreen. Sections of the trail can be challenging. The guided hike takes place on the Hungry Hollow Trail. Attendees are asked to meet at the trail entrance along the sidewalk at 124 Miller Drive, Georgetown.
Space is limited and registration is required either online at creditvalleyca.ca/hh or by phone at (905) 670-1615 ext. 221.
