Long Point Basin Land Trust was founded in 1996 with a mission to protect and restore functioning ecosystems in the central Carolinian Region. This is accomplished through land ownership, land management and nature stewardship. LPBLT currently protects 10 nature reserves, totaling 671 acres, which provide opportunities for people to connect with nature through hands-on outdoor experiences.
We are so very excited to be launching the new Explore the Outdoors program, which will bring people together to explore and appreciate the amazing natural areas in this region.
All of the events are FREE and open to anyone! However, registration is recommended for attendance at any of the events and will open one month prior to each event. The number of available spaces varies by event and may be limited. Do not forget to bring to the events whatever you need to enjoy your time outdoors – water bottle, hiking boots, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, etc.
Events are sponsored by:
Winter Solstice Walk 2019
December 21 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Enjoy the special sights and sounds we are lucky to observe when we make time to get outdoors in winter when nature appears to be sleeping. You are invited to join Long Point Basin Land Trust on Saturday, December 21, 2019 from 1-4pm for a Winter Solstice walk to mark the beginning of lengthening days and shortening nights.
A walk through the forest at this time of year is not only inspiring; it is also a great time to learn about different tree species. Tommy Gerencser will lead an exploration of the energy of the forest at Trout Creek Nature Reserve while sharing tips and tricks to identify trees.
An advocate of meditative walks, Tommy will also discuss the benefits of nature to our health. Bring appropriate gear for cold weather as well as an open heart and mind.
Trout Creek Nature Reserve is located at 361 Charlotteville 10 Road, Simcoe, ON (just west of Yuell Road).
