|Please join the Thames Talbot Land Trust at Hawk Cliff Woods this Saturday, September 19, at 12:30 for the public launch of the Soaring Higher, Hawk Cliff and Beyond Campaign. The launch will include that campaign announcement, light refreshments and a short guided hike of the property.
Hawk Cliff is a stunning 230 acre property fronting on Lake Erie near Port Stanley. Steep cliffs provide sweeping views of the lake. The woodland here is one of the most significant deep interior forests in Elgin County. In the maple-beech forest you will find 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.
Each autumn, hundreds of observers are attracted to Hawk Cliff by the spectacular phenomenon of hawk migration. Hawk Cliff is also important for the study of the Monarch butterfly, a species of Special Concern. Help TTLT protect and enhance Hawk Cliff Woods in perpetuity. Tours will be available. Bring a friend and explore this beautiful property.
