In Walking Through Time Beth Gilhespy shares her love affair with the geology of Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment. “To me, every walk on the Niagara Escarpment is a walk through time, starting 450 million years ago and continuing through the millennia to the still-changing landscape of today. I have found profound delight in sharing my love of Escarpment geology with thousands of others on geology hikes I lead as a volunteer between 2003 and 2018. This book is a culmination of many years of exploration and encouragement from those geology hikers, and from the volunteers with whom I connected and who remain my friends.” Beth takes readers on a journey to explore the formation of the Niagara Escarpment and the interesting and ancient geological features found along the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley area. By providing maps, photos and descriptive text for 8 geology hikes in the Beaver Valley, she encourages readers to head to the Escarpment for their own geological explorations.


Beth Gilhespy has worked in the field of environmental conservation for more than 30 years and was CEO of the Bruce Trail Conservancy between 2004 and 2018.  She is an avid explorer and frequently hikes in the Canadian Rockies, on long distance paths in the UK and locally on Ontario’s Bruce Trail. She holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in physical geography and geology from the University of Guelph. Beth is Executive Director of the Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy, and lives in Guelph, Ontario with her husband, 2 dogs and three cats.
