Kettle Creek Conservation Authority has finalized the donation of 46 acres of forest habitat creating a new Conservation Area that will be known as Deer Ridge Conservation Area – a generous donation from Ted and Duggie Gill and family.
The property is immediately adjacent to the The Ridge at Talbotville Grove subdivision and within close proximity to the Talbotville Meadows subdivision. KCCA is in the process of developing a management plan for the area to identify how the public can safely and responsibly access the property while protecting the natural features.
The donation is part of the Ecological Gift Program – ensuring that the recipient, KCCA, maintains the property in perpetuity and in keeping with the donor’s wishes. While a passive natural surfaced hiking trail will be included in the management plan, KCCA is asking the public to stay off the property until there is an official opening.
