We start our new season with a 10 am walk through Newport Forest located at 22130 Fleming Line, West Elgin.
The 44.5-ha (110 acre) site is located on the south side of the Thames River near Wardsville, Ontario within the Deciduous Forest Zone. Historically, it is ecologically contiguous with the Skunk’s Misery area on the north side of the Thames, barely one kilometer’s distance over intervening agricultural land.
Newport Forest consists of lowland forest, with some upland forest (the Hogsback), meadow, ravine slopes and bluff forests, and floodplain.
