Long Point Basin Land Trust
Morning Stroll with the Birds

Langton, ON, May 11, 2019 – Join the Long Point Basin Land Trust for a free event on Saturday, May 11th at Spring Arbour Farm Nature Reserve, near Walsingham.

Join David Agro, a dedicated conservationist and Director of the LPBLT Board, as he leads a morning walk at Spring Arbour Farm Nature Reserve. Bring your binoculars as we will be looking and listening for some of the returning migrants, including the evasive Cerulean Warbler. We also recommend bringing bug spray, a water bottle and wearing appropriate clothing for the walk.

Following the walk, Long Point Basin Land Trust will be officially unveiling the Ken McMullen & Joan Shirlow Spring Arbour Farm Nature Reserve. In 1990, Ken McMullen and Joan Shirlow bought their farm which was in much need of revitalization. They immediately began regenerating it into an organic fruit and vegetable farm. The name they chose for the farm is a tribute to the nearby historical hamlet of Spring Arbour. To fulfill their desire for Spring Arbour Farm to become a nature reserve, Joan donated a significant portion of the property in memory of Ken, who passed in 2014. Their legacy of environmental and humanitarian dedication lives on in Long Point Basin Land Trust's acquisition and stewardship of the Ken McMullen and Joan Shirlow Spring Arbour Farm Nature Reserve.
