Our woodland trails have many flowers and ferns which we try and identify, list and photograph as we find them.

Here is the latest list and links to our Managed Forest Plan and some pictures of Our Trails and Our Flowers

 as well as a list of some of The Birds we have seen here and information on how to Join us for a Walk around our nature trails.

Also please see my WoodLink page for some resources on this subject.

This list last updated in Sept 2011 is in approximate order of flowering.

‘Ref’ is the page in Petersons Field Guide to NE Wildflowers or ‘The Ferns of Grey Bruce’.

FOC refers to the location being Forested, Open area or a Cleared area.
