Geocache Description:


This geocache is one of twenty Community Lands GeoPassport geocaches within the South Nation Jurisdiction. For more information on this series of geocaches, please visit South_Nation.

These SNC forest trails have been popular with the equestrian community. Park on the roadside and follow the unmaintained trail through this property towards the geocache.

One common theme that comes to mind as residents and visitors take in summer recreational opportunities like paddling, swimming and fishing, is that the watershed is full of water! Many are surprised to learn that forests play a direct role in the health of our waterways, fisheries and the water cycle. Two-thirds of Canadians also rely on surface water, including lakes and rivers, for their supply of drinking water. Trees are designed by nature to purify and store water for natural and human use. As a result, a large portion of water comes from forested areas. As precipitation reaches the forest floor, it becomes cleaner as the soil filters out minerals and pollutants. Forests are natural combatants against floods, soil erosion and droughts by reducing sediment from going into waterways and increasing water absorption into the ground.

Fun Fact: Black Locus trees are scattered across this property. These non-native trees were once used as natural fence posts, and mark the remains of an existing homestead.
