(WINDSOR, ON) – This year marks the 125th anniversary of the discovery of the famed west end Ojibway Prairie. To celebrate, the Ojibway Nature Centre plans to host two days of bike tours through the area’s tallgrass prairie.
In its promotional material, the Nature Centre says the bike riders will be able to, “… experience first-hand the incredible sense of wonder that John Macoun, Dominion Botanist of Canada, felt in 1892,” when he first visited the prairie.
Those who take the tour will get up and personal with some of the country’s most endangered species. They will also learn some of the methods now in place to preserve these very same species and the ecosystem in which they live.
The event will also include crafts and activities for all ages. There is no cost to participate.
The tours will run from 9:00am until noon both Saturday and Sunday and starting from the Ojibway Nature Centre on Matchette Road. Further details can be found by calling 519 966 5852 or online.
