Sunday, May 15 – 1:30 p.m. / HODGES’ POND

In 2015 a re-naturalization project was started to return the roughly 400-acres of land to its original status.  The pond was originally built as a mill pond, but the subsequent re-opening of the dam and reconnection of the stream to Cedar Creek has provided environmental benefits such as improved flood reduction and water quality for the Thames river.  It also sustains new vegetation and wildlife habitat.  This project ties into Future Oxford’s Community Sustainability plan to protect and restore the ecosystem. Contact Ken, 519-539-5234.

Saturday, June 4 – 9 a.m. / Lawson Nature Reserve Clean-up Day

Community members are welcome to join us for clean-up activities at the Reserve, including trail maintenance, garlic mustard extraction and painting. Bring gloves, bug spray and water proof boots. Contact: Peter, 519-425-0429

Saturday, June 25 – 9:00 a.m. / ST. WILLIAMS CONSERVATION RESERVE

Visit and hike some of the trail system of this very large reserve located in the St. Williams/Turkey Point area. Great variety of trails and one or two will be selected prior to the trip down. Part of the Carolinian Forest area so the chance to see species that we don’t normally see in the immediate Ingersoll area. Contact: Ken, 519-539-5234

We welcome newcomers to participate in any and all of our activities. We are interested in        the development and preservation of nature in Oxford County.
