Take a stroll through habitat and history on the South Shore

The South Shore Joint Initiative invites Prince Edward residents and visitors to go on a stroll to learn about and appreciate habitat and history on the South Shore.

The Spring Stroll is set for Sunday, April 28 from 9 am to 1 pm along Helmer Rd. from County Rd 13 and exploring a conservation project in the making.

“This is an approximately 6-7 km walk giving an opportunity to investigate parts of an exciting future conservation project, the Crown Land Block and the Hudgin-Rose property. The area hosts unique butterflies and birds and the iconic Blanding’s Turtle,” said Cheryl Anderson, stroll leader.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC) Brodeur project is immediately west of the Ostrander Point Crown Land Block. NCC has signed an agreement to purchase this private property and is currently raising funds to conserve it in perpetuity. Passing through the Crown Land Block, strollers will reach NCC’s newly-acquired Hudgin-Rose property on the eastern side.

The South Shore Joint Initiative is working to secure protection of the public areas in the South Shore Important Bird and Biodiversity Area.

The first stroll was held last August long weekend. Although the weather was very warm, more than 20 people participated in the two-day walk covering Army Reserve and Hilltop roads.

“We welcome everyone to come out and experience the unique natural habitat of our Important Bird and Biodiversity Area,” said Anderson. “This is a great opportunity to experience one of the County’s special places.”

Participants are advised to bring water and snacks and be prepared for wet roadways. Washroom facilities available.
