Nature Reserves Campaign 2013 Banner

Thank you! Over 1,180 donors contributed to create our
three new nature reserves.

Silent Valley, Fairmount-Webwood Passage and Duntroon Crevice Heights are the latest additions to the growing Bruce Trail Conservation Corridor. 

Thanks to our donors, 232 more acres of Niagara Escarpment landscape have been preserved and now will be conserved in perpetuity for everyone to access and enjoy.

Exploring these new nature reserves

The Bruce Trail currently passes through Silent Valley and Duntroon Crevice Heights. Bruce Trail Club volunteers are establishing new trail at Fairmount-Webwood Passage (moving the current route from the road on to this new nature reserve).  New trail is also being added to highlight the extraordinary features of Silent Valley in the spring of 2014.  Please do plan to visit these beautiful new nature reserves and explore their unique natural attributes.

Donor Tours

Thank you to all donors who registered for a BTC-hosted tour of one of the new nature reserves this spring. We look forward to (re)introducing you to the wonderful places you helped to preserve. Details about each tour will be sent to registrants closer to the tour dates.

Our Nature Reserves 2013 Campaign is part of the BTC's

50th Anniversary Milestones Project - an ambitious conservation initiative.

Between 2012 and 2017, the BTC will permanently secure and preserve 5,000 acres of Niagara Escarpment land, provide for their stewardship and rehabilitation, and ensure trails on these lands are of the highest ecological and recreational standard.
