2020 Forest Hike Series with ReForest London

Starting in 2017 for Ontario and Canada's 150th birthday, ReForest London welcomed many people to celebrate Ontario Forests with our Forest Hike Series. Since then, we continued to offer hikes to the public throughout the months of May to July, and in 2019 in the fall as well. These hikes take place in a variety of Environmentally Significant Areas across the city. They are geared towards any Londoner who is keen on learning more about the natural areas London has. 

This year, we get to offer hikes for nature-loving Londoners once again! This year's Forest Hike Series dates are listed below. These hikes will be led in several of London's many ESAs as well as Harris Park to provide those with accessibility needs the opportunity to participate as well!

Did You Know?

In the City of London, 21 natural areas are currently designated as “Environmentally Significant Areas” or ESAs. These areas exist within both agricultural and urban settings and include wetlands, forests and meadows as well as river corridors and valleylands and significant wildlife habitat. 

Special thanks to MEC and the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund for funding our summer hike series!

Please note that most locations do NOT have washrooms. Click on the location address to see a map showing where to meet.
