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.
- Dan Coleman (English Professor and author of Yardwork: A Biography of an Urban Place)
- Randy Kay (Restore Cootes)
- Judy Major-Girardin (School of the Arts)
I attended the history hike today and I am so very happy I did. The knowledge that you and Daniel Coleman conveyed about the Cootes Paradise Watershed inspired me to more thoroughly engage with the local history and "a sense of place" in addition to the science to advocate for changes to preserve the marsh and improve water quality.
Thank you so much!
