Hike Happy Valley!
It's easy for us to think of ourselves as separate from nature when you live in the city, but the we rely on it for our daily health. The Happy Valley Forest (an NCC conservation site) protects part of the watershed that provides much of the GTA's drinking water, and the forest's carbon sequestration cleans our air.
This Saturday they're holding a special, free guided hike that's open to the public. Conservation experts will lead hikers through ravines, forests and ridges, providing information on the area's history, ecology and significance. It's a chance for people to get the health benefits of being outside and gain an appreciation for its services.
Most of the GTA has been logged, developed, and changed. Happy Valley Forest is an old-growth forest in the making, which is pretty special for a place that's right in our backyard.
