Project Sheldon Creek (Burlington)
The meeting location for this location is at Sherwood Forest Park, in the East Parking lot.
Sheldon Creek runs down from the escarpment in Halton Region and travels through North Burlington before emptying into Lake Ontario. It is known as an urban creek but runs through several small forested areas and parks before flowing into Lake Ontario near Shell Park. One of the largest or these areas is Sherwood Forest Park which is a couple of blocks South of the QEW between Appleby and Burloak Dr. It reaches Lake Ontario at Shell Park. Many different animal species can be found along Sheldon Creek including a vast array of birds such as; the great blue heron, as well as many of our four legged friends like; foxes, coyotes, mink and beaver. We salute all who want to make the environment cleaner and hope you will join us at this new location and have some fun.
Sheldon Creek is one of 18 small watersheds along the north shore of Lake Ontario and crosses through Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and portions of Mississauga (a typical small watershed that drains into Lake Ontario is long and narrow);
The landscape tends to be rural in the northern reaches and becomes more heavily developed toward the lake;
Despite heavy development, the North Shore watershed contains some interesting natural features such as the Niagara Escarpment, Carolinian forest, old-growth forest, and remnants of both prairie and oak savannah.
