spring along Spencer

Lower Spencer Creek Trail: Dundas ON

So warm in the sun, but still the look of winter persists. The trail was very pleasant, a bit slippery in places, but generally compact and, with proper boots, not a problem to traverse.

Plenty of red-wing blackbirds calling out of the marsh and high in the trees, the beauty disturbed by the cars and truck noise from nearby Cootes Drive. Still, a lovely walk with a remnant wild space still supporting life despite the encroaching human infrastructure.

Eco Motion Meeting Moved

From the organizer at Environment Hamilton:

There has been a last minute change in plans, and the meeting has changed locations from the Town Hall to the Amica Retirement Residence. The meeting will take place at the same time at 7 PM on March 16th, and is just west of the Town Hall along Hatt Street. The Amica building is on the corner of Hatt and Ogilvie (50 Hatt St). I look forward to seeing you there!

The meeting is 
"a review committee for the Dundas Eco-Motion Project ...and door prizes will be awarded. We will be focusing upon prioritizing the walkability concerns within Dundas, which will then be taken to Councillor Russ Powers. All are welcome to come, and any feedback is much appreciated. I hope to see you there."
