MVFN Annual Autumn Walk & Dedication Ceremony for Michael McPhail Memorial at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Have you ever taken the time to explore the natural features of the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area? This autumnal equinox, join our guided tour of its over 150 acres containing riparian habitats, woodlands, fields, and their ecotones. Not sure what an ecotone is? See you this coming Saturday!

The walk will conclude at the Mike McPhail Memorial Bench installed by MVFN this past summer to commemorate Mike’s service to nature conservation. A dedication ceremony will take place at this bench, located at the children’s playground near the Education Centre. After the ceremony you are invited to the Education Centre for a light snack.
