Multiple Sections of Durham Regional Forest Trails to be Closed

Selective Tree Thinning from September 26 to November 18, 2016

NEWMARKET – September 21, 2016 – Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) will close a number of trails in the Main Tract in Durham Regional Forest from September 26 to November 18, 2016, inclusive. The Main Tract of the Durham Regional Forest is located between Concession 7 and Lakeridge Road, south of Goodwood Road, in the Township of Uxbridge.

In order to promote the growth of saplings and the overall health of the Durham Regional Forest, LSRCA will be conducting selective thinning during the course of this closure. Thinning is a requirement of the restoration plans for this property and will ensure a healthy mature forest is protecting our watershed.

Details of the affected areas will be posted on signs at the Main Tract, on LSRCA's website, and in the display panels at the Durham Regional Forest Main Tract and Timbers Tract. Warning signs will also be posted in the work area. Trail users are asked to observe the warning signs in the posted areas for their own safety.

For more information on the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority and its forest management practices, please call 1.800.465.0437.

It is the mission of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority to work with our community to protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed by leading research, policy and action.
