Take a walk with Botanigal, aka Rebecca, to learn more about the forested and wetland ecosystems that can be found in Haliburton County.  We will focus on the plant offerings along the trail and will discuss the wildlife species that depend on them. Why are these ecosystems and their species the way they are?  Why is Citizen Science so important?  Pack your camera and binoculars to improve the hike’s species count, which we will submit to the Haliburton Highlands Field Naturalists.  Suitable for adults, teens and children 10+. No dogs, please.
