Join Trent University’s professor of aquatic sciences, Paul Frost, who, together with the PFN has been advocating to get Loggerhead Marsh protected from the impact of encroaching urban development.

Loggerhead Marsh is now recognized as a provincially significant wetland. It contains a large area of cattail marsh, patches of forested wetland, and expanses of wet meadows. Its outflow stream flows through several forested areas and downstream into Jackson Creek.

Bring your binoculars!

Meet near Paul Frost’s house at 1419 Ireland Drive, Peterborough. There is plenty of street parking available on Ireland Drive.

 

Accessibility: mostly easy, but there may be some small slopes of moderate difficulty. Some areas may be damp, so good boots are recommended.
