celebratory, interactive community event:

Let's take the next step in creating our clean, low-carbon future!

Cambridge has a new woodlot management plan for Victoria Park – come and enjoy a Spring walk, learn about our local forest, and how you can be involved in making it healthier. The majority of the walk will consist of footpaths through the forest with varying accessibility, slopes and surfaces.
Enjoy the riverscapes of Galt and learn about how, in the age of bell-bottoms, the City flooded. A massive public works project followed to prevent future floods and protect the downtown. The walking route will be on the east side of the river to cross over at the Main St. bridge, through Sculpture Garden and riverside trails on the west side of the river, then across the Concession St. bridge and back north to the parking lot starting point. The walk is largely accessible along sidewalks and riverfront asphalt trails in downtown Galt.
We’ll explore the human ecology of a rare cold-water watercourse, Mill Creek from Soper Park to its mouth along the Grand River, and how the creek has been altered, destroyed, and renewed over the past 200 years. The walk will consist of accessible, flat locations (asphalt walking trails, sidewalks). Distance may be an issue for some (i.e. Soper Park to Grand River and back again).
Which city has the most nature?
The City Nature Challenge 2018 will help us find out! More than 60 cities in 17 countries around the world are asking people to explore nature in their urban areas and document the species they find.
Help Waterloo Region show the world how biodiverse our region is by making as many observations of as many species as possible April 27-30! Any observation of plants and animals and fungi you find in Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, Wellesley, Woolwich, Wilmot, and North Dumfries will count!
Building on the success of the first City Nature Challenge in 2016 between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and the 2017 City Nature Challenge across 16 US cities, the event founders, the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, have expanded the event around the world.
