GRCA maintaining closure of several properties due to emerald ash borer

To The Haldimand Press

BYNG—In order to minimize the risk presented by the decline of ash trees due to emerald ash borer (EAB), the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) is maintaining the closure of a number of properties to the public, including the small island and adjacent forest in the eastern portion of Byng Island Conservation Area in Dunnville.

Other properties remaining closed include:

  • Trail at the south end of Wrigley Lake in the Township of North Dumfries;
  • Entire property and associated trail at Hosack Tract in the Township of Blandford-Blenheim; and
  • Trails on the western half of Apps’ Mill in the County of Brant. (The Cleaver Road parking lot with adjacent access to Whiteman’s Creek will remain open.)

Signage is being posted at each area, and people are asked to respect the closures for their own safety.
