The Canton Recreation Department is partnering with Nature Up North to provide a Canton Trails Series this fall. Join us each Friday afternoon in October as we feature one of Canton’s beautiful trails! Each Trails Series event will begin with a guided activity (30-45minutes) after which you will be invited to continue to explore the trail on your own. This family friendly program is open to all, and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Join us for the 3rd week of the Fall Trails Series on the St. Lawrence Kip Tract! This event will include the opportunity to participate in the Community Ash Tree Survey, a new initiative from Nature Up North which addresses concerns about emerald ash borer, an invasive insect expected to impact ash trees in the near future. The group will work together to survey ash trees along the kip tract, taking the time to stop along the way to see special features on the trail, including an active beaver dam. After surveying everyone will be encouraged to continue exploring the trail on their own or to head back to the Field Station.
Distance: 1-2.5 miles
Parking: Wachtmeister Field Station (from downtown, take Park St./Route 27 through campus and past the athletic fields, after crossing the wooden bridge, take your first left onto the gravel driveway)
