Forest Hike Series with ReForest London

Our Hikes Series has now ended for 2018. 

During Summer 2017, ReForest London welcomed many people to celebrate Ontario Forests with our Forest Hike Series for Ontario and Canada's 150th Birthday! Our hikes were held in the Forest City, throughout the months of May to July, many taking place in Environmentally Significant Areas. 

This summer we continued to offer hikes to the public, for Londoners keen on learning more about the natural areas London has. This year's Forest Hike Series dates are listed below.

This year, we led hikes in London's ESAs, but also in Harris Park, to provide those with accessibility needs the opportunity to participate as well!

Did You Know?

In the City of London, 21 natural areas are currently designated as “Environmentally Significant Areas” or ESAs. These areas exist within both agricultural and urban settings and include wetlands, forests and meadows as well as river corridors and valleylands and significant wildlife habitat. 

Special thanks to the Government of Ontario for funding this program, and to our hike partner, Thames Valley Trail Association, who has provided hike leaders to lead some of the hikes in the series.
