Blue Herons for Coldspring Valley!
We have a new poster for raising awareness about the opportunity to turn paved parking lots back into healthy wetlands next to Ancaster Creek in McMaster's "Lot M" on west campus. We encourage you to join our Facebook page and stay actively involved.
If you are able, print a poster off and put it up somewhere! If you want some to put up, you can contact Randy at 905-525-9140 ext. 26026 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for free posters.
Thanks to volunteer Aili Wang for the poster design!
We're heading back out to share the history of this former floodplain/nature sanctuary, and take a look at the rehabilitated future of this contested site in McMaster's west campus. Can we really depave Paradise? It's happening!
We're going on a hike to introduce McMaster students (and any other interested participants) to this former RBG Coldspring Valley Nature Sanctuary and coldwater creek floodplain - currently a parking lot - to examine the past, present and future of this place that is undergoing an important ecological transformation.
