West Elgin Nature Reserve

In 1983 the Aldborough Township council appointed the West Elgin Nature Club to manage this closed landfill site. Many trees have been planted in the area near the road as memorials or by those interested in the natural habitat.  These trees have sign posts identifying the tree plus the person’s name.

Options for trail walks through the forest include a .4 km, .9 km or .8 km route which are accessible for hiking and birding. Some mature Carolinian forest trees labelled are tulip, silver maple and big tooth aspen. Undergrowth includes much spicebush.

A picnic table is located near the entrance.
