Walk Through 10,000 Years of Environmental Change at the Lochlin Esker and Wetlands

Monarch Butterfly Larva

Join your hosts Don and Mary Wright for a personal tour of their secluded wetlands where you’ll meander groomed trails and rustic boardwalks in search of the mysterious Lochlin Esker.

An esker is a long snaking mound of sand and gravel left behind by melting glaciers, formed around 10,000 years ago when the ice sheets receded from this area. Not uncommon in other parts, its quite unusual to find this type of glacial feature in Ontario’s Highlands. This combined with the unique geology of the Highlands has lead to the formation of a glorious, and unique wetlands environment that the Wright Family have been caring for since 1971. On their property you’ll find a stunning array of flora and fauna to enjoy.
