New Hiking Area To Be Added To The Oak Ridges Corridor Park

May 13, 2011

MEDIA ADVISORY

May 12, 2011

The Board of Directors of the Oak Ridges Trail Association in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) invite media to attend a hike in the Jefferson Forest.  On this hike we will be viewing over 400 magnificent acres of the TRCA Jefferson Forest tract that will soon be added to the existing Oak Ridges Corridor Park.  We will also explore the new primary route for the Oak Ridges Moraine Trail through that property.  The property is tentatively set to be formally be integrated with Oak Ridges Corridor Park in the Summer of 2011.

We will also be going through one of the largest dry kettles on the Oak Ridges Moraine where the hillsides will be covered in springtime flowering trees.  This beautiful mature forest, dotted with wetlands, is one of the least disturbed areas close to Toronto.

Date:                Tuesday, May 17
