Help us plant the Auzins Community Wildflower Garden!

During the Hawk Cliff Weekends we will be planting native wildflowers in the new Auzins Community Wildflower Garden. The purpose of the garden is to be a tranquil community space that showcases beautiful native plants that can be used in landscaping. Visitors are welcome to collect seeds from the garden and are encouraged to grow native plants in their own gardens.

The garden is named to recognize the contribution of Karen and Eric Auzins, whose generosity helped make it possible for TTLT to permanently protect Hawk Cliff Woods. We are also grateful to TD Friends of the Environment for providing a grant to create the garden.

Please join us to plant native wildflowers and learn about gardening with native plants, on both Saturdays of the Hawk Cliff Weekends at 12:30pm.

When: September 16th and 23rd at 12:30 - 1:30pm
Where: Hawk Cliff Woods, 4435 Hawk Cliff Rd, Union, ON
Cost: Free!

Remarkable Reptiles!

Last year's Remarkable Reptiles event was so popular we've decided to bring it back! On September 17th, during the Hawk Cliff Weekends, don't miss a special presentation from Sssciensational Snakes! featuring live reptiles. The presentation will focus on Ontario's native snakes but will also feature some turtles. Learn why snakes aren't so scary and find out how to protect and conserve these amazing species.

Thank you to the Ontario Land Trust Alliance for supporting this event.

Where: Hawk Cliff Woods, 4435 Hawk Cliff Rd, Union, ON
