Skeoch

History

The Skeoch Reserve was donated in 2015. It is almost 70 acres and includes part of the Bruce Trail.

Significant Features

The property appears to have experienced natural succession for many decades, untouched and unaided by human influence with the exception of creation and maintenance of the Bruce Trail. A headwaters tributary of the Beaver River rises within one kilometre of the Property and flows west towards the Beaver valley through the village of Red Wing. The mature hardwoods, cedar forests and cliff face vegetation, plus permanent streams provide important sources of food, shelter, breeding habitat and travel corridors for a wide variety of wildlife including birds, mammals, herpetofauna and aquatic species.
