Pelton Property

Alnwick/Haldimand, adjacent to Peter's Woods Provincial Park

Part of lot 13, concession 8 and part of lot 14, concession 8, with access easement in lot 15, concession 8.

In January 2009, the split-receipting transaction was completed with Dr. David and Mrs Molly Pelton. We now have another 52 acres under preservation on the Oak Ridges Moraine, adjacent to Peter's Woods Provincial Park. This property, in the Municipality of Alnwick/Haldimand, lies within the "Natural Core Area" of the Oak Ridges Moraine Plan and almost entirely within the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. The property includes wetlands and a watercourse which are shared with PWPP and form a tributary to the headwater of the Burnley Creek, thus creating a natural corridor between the two.

The severed land will be managed as a nature reserve next door to the existing PWPP. The retained land will continue as private forest and cropland, but without any residential use.

If you would like to volunteer to assist with the stewardship of this property, please contact us
