Lambton Shores Nature Trails recently hosted a unique fundraising hike & experience with renowned local native artist Jeffrey “Red Dog” George. On a beautiful, sunny day, the hike was held on one of the most spectacular ABCA properties, Mystery Falls. At the falls, Red enlightened the group with a traditional “Pipe Ceremony”. We would like to thank Jeffrey for “Building Bridges in our Communities”.
We are pleased to announce the completion of the trailhead structure in Forest. We want to thank everyone who helped make this a reality! Come out and enjoy the trail network in Forest. We have also started the process of building an identical trailhead structure at the community centre in Port Franks. Please consider donating to these community beautification projects. For amounts over $300, a colured leaf with your name and a brief comment will be added to the donation tree on the side panel at either of the trailheads. Please contact Linda Attard @ 519-243-1596 - donations over $20 will be issued an official tax receipt.

We are a proud member of the County of Lambton Adopt-A-Road Program; cleaning Bog Line from Northville Rd. to the edge of the county. We have been involved in other projects to beautify the area for generations to come including a "green" tunnel of trees behind the community centre in Port Franks. LSNT is also spearheading a three year research project to determine if black walnut husks have an impact on controlling the growth of phragmites.
