Have you explored the Trans-Canada rail trail between Hamilton and Brantford yet? Have you paddled the Grand River by canoe or kayak? The Langford Conservancy promotes eco-cultural tourism as part of its mission to protect local archeological, natural and cultural heritage. Over the years, we have partnered with various organizations (Paris to Ancaster bike race, Ontario by Bike, Environment Hamilton, Grand Experiences) to host cycling events, cycling and medicinal/edible plant walks, and canoe events.
This year again our volunteers will host the Paris to Ancaster Bike Race on a local farm. We are also partnering with Grand Experiences, a local outfitter and tour company, to host eco-cultural adventures that will enable participants to learn about our local cultural heritage and ecosystem.
This summer, we are collaborating with Grand Experiences to help host bike-canoe trips with a farmstay at Heart’s Content Organic Farm. Participants will learn about the rich First Nations history (Neutral Indians and Six Nations) and archeological findings in our area and our efforts to protect the local Carolinian forest, farmland, and the headwaters of the Grand River. As a part of this event, naturopathic doctor, Richard Tunstall will provide guided tours on medicinal and edible plants.
Stay tuned for more information on how to join the Langford Conservancy for these events!
