Whitchurch Conservation Area is an 11 hectare, mainly wooded property, located in the Township of Whitchurch-Stouffville, and sits on the northern edge of the Oak Ridges Moraine. It was reforested in the late 1960’s which today provides lots of shade as the plantation has matured, and new successional forest growth has successfully occurred.
Whitchurch Conservation Area is adjacent to the Robinson Tract of the York Region Forest, and is connected by trails. This property contains a relatively rich collection of bird species, as well as a variety of ecological communities. Also containing a small pond, this property can be noisy with the calling of frogs in the spring time. With rustic trails crossing the property, this is a great place to take the family for a hike!
