Hawk Cliff Woods Campaign Update
The TTLT Campaign, Hawk Cliff Woods, Soaring Higher, is nearing completion.
We are currently at 95%! Hawk Cliff Woods is a beautiful 230 acre property fronting on Lake Erie near Port Stanley.
Steep cliffs provide sweeping views of the lake. The woodland area is one of the most significant deep interior forests in Elgin
County. In the maple-beech forest there are Carolinian specialties, including the Tulip-tree and Pignut Hickory as well as the
Endangered Butternut and American Chestnut. Rare birds such as Eastern Wood-Pewee, Acadian Flycatcher, Louisiana Waterthrush,
and Wood Thrush thrive in the deep woods. Please help us to reach 100%! Your donation will support the purchase and stewardship
of this incredible property!
Celebrating Vistas of the Thames River
Its not too late to purchase one of our Vistas of the Thames River Posters! Posters are $20.00 and plaque mounted posters are
$50.00. This stylish 19 x 24 inch poster features 25 vistas of the Thames River submitted by local photographers. The poster is
available for pick up at the TTLT office and any TTLT event.
