    Morning Walk Through Gillies Grove

    9:00 amOttawa Street entrance to Gillies Grove

    Leader: Steve Duffield

    Meet: 9AM at the Ottawa Street entrance to Gilles Grove, Arnprior

    As a follow-up to the recent presentation to our club by Gary Bell from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, a trip through one of the Conservancy’s properties, Gillies Grove, which he discussed, is in order. We will wander through the trails to see the magnificent old trees of this park, which was spared the fate of the surrounding forest because it was part of the Gillies homestead. One Eastern White Pine on the property was recently named the tallest tree in Ontario. Along the way we will likely see birds, butterflies and dragonflies so bring your binoculars. Water, insect protection and sun protection are essential.
