On July 3, Essex Region Conservation was proud to join the launch of the Amherstburg Community Foundation (ACF), which has chosen to support the creation of a new nature trail between Holiday Beach Conservation Area and the County Wide Active Transportation System.  Trail users would include hikers, walkers and single-track cyclists who could explore and connect with the forests and wetlands contained within the 300 acre property.

This project will also include the creation of a wetland to combat flooding and climate change and tree planting for habitat restoration. The excavated fill from the wetland will be used to create a varied topography to support the cycling and walking trail.

With support from the ACF, the effort will begin with a ‘design charette’, whereby user groups can input into the design features they would like to see included.  To add your support to create this cycling trail, please visit the Amherstburg Community Foundation website.
