The Goldie Feldman Nature Reserve is located in Happy Valley Forest on the Oak Ridges Moraine. It features a 2.5 kms nature trail that travels through ravines, ridges, old fields and wooded wetland habitats.
Those old fields are home to a splendid variety of of moths, butterflies, skimmers and other flying life. Thanks to Ken Sproule for his invaluable aid in identification!
Paula is digging and shaping the loam of a salvia,
Scarlet Chinese talker of summer.
Two petals of crabapple blossom blow fallen in Paula’s hair
And fluff of white from a cottonwood. – Carl Sandburg (1878–1902)
