Fraser Gibson will lead us on a walk through Huron Natural Area, exploring some of its many trails. An archeological dig confirmed that Indigenous people called this area home for many years. Along the way, Fraser will chat briefly about the dig findings as well as the natural area’s more recent history. Some tree and fern identification will be done along the way.FraserGibson.png
