LSNT is a proud sponsor of Discover The Trails!
April 2017 - Earth Day/Canada150 Tree Planting
23 volunteers came together to plant 80 trees behind the community centre in Port Franks to form a "green tunnel". The trees planted included sugar and autumn fantasy maples, oaks, yellow buckeyes, white cedars and white pines.
April 2017 - Mystery Falls Trail Head Sign & Benches
LSNT has now installed a trail head sign at the Mystery Falls trail entrance off Elm Tree Drive. This will help first time hikers find and understand the trail loop. We are also pleased to announce that two benches have been installed at the falls. Donated by Ross Atkinson, the benches are dedicated in the memory of his parents, both of whom were WWII veterans.
August 2016 - Youth Camp Participation
We participated in Participation in Nature & Art Youth Camp sponsored by the Ausable Port Franks Optimist Club. Thanks to volunteers that came out to make this a great success.
June 2016 - Ausable Cut Floating Dock
Thanks to a generous grant from the Grand Bend Community Foundation, LSNT's partnership with The Ausable-Bayfield Conservation Authority, Exiplast of Huron Park and a group of dedicated LSNT volunteers, a floating dock is now available in the Ausable River Cut Conservation Area in Northville. Canoeists and kayakers can now launch their crafts in the 'Cut' to connect with hiking trails in Pinery Provincial Park, several nature trails in Port Franks and when water levels permit, the nature trails in the Ausable River Valley between Sylvan and Arkona.
April 2016 - Mystery Falls Parking Lot
LSNT has created a parking lot near the end of Elm Tree Drive. The lot will fit 6-8 cars and can be found on the right side just up the hill from the Mystery Falls Trail head. This will give hikers an opportunity to park off road to avoid blocking local farm machinery.
