Chestnut-sided Warbler

This bird could be spotted along the Hickson Trail.  This photo was taken locally by Richard Skevington.

Naturalists, runners, cyclists, walkers can you spare some time to HELP?

We need volunteers to help clear out a wider path in the south and middle sections of the Hickson Trail to at least 8 feet in width in order to comfortably accommodate the runners in the Upper Thames Brewing  Company’s Fun Run in September.  This run will help raise money to extend our trail through to Hickson.

Time and Place is Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 am (rain date is Sunday, August 13th at the same time.)  Please meet at the trail entrance on County Road 33 (Mill Side Rd.)
Typical items to bring are:  lopping shears,  pruning saws, Sawsal, hedge trimmers, weed eaters, Swede saws and rakes to clean up.  Don’t forget bring insect repellent and gloves.

First Bridge for Hickson Trail

Not very beautiful eh?  However, the metal structure is sound and suits the trail’s need beautifully.  Now located at the East Zorra-Tavistock Yard this 4 ton truck trailer bed is waiting to be moved, in the near future, to its permanent site.  There a cement block support, a new wooden floor and wooden railings will all be added as outlined by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority.  The trailer bed was purchased from Mike Hartstein at the Hog Assembly Yard in Stratford.  Thank you for your good service Mike!
