Niagara, Ontario – This Sunday, August 20th marks the seventh and final day of a   camp out by a group of determined Niagara area citizens working to grow more public support for saving 484 acres of Thundering Waters Forest in Niagara Falls, Ontario from at least partial urban development.

Numerous Niagara area citizens, including some of our elected representatives on local and regional councils, have already been out to show there support for saving this natural gem and what is left of the forests and wetlands in our region – and there is precious little left, including less than 10 per cent of the wetlands that were originally here.

And by all means, try to gothis Sunday, August 20th, if you haven’t been up to now, and visit the forest and water defenders in the campe and signing their guest book at the camp in Thundering Waters Forest  in Niagara Falls, Ontario

Here are some directions to the camp:

From the Queen Elizabeth Highway take the McLeod St exit (exit 27), go east on McLeod.  In approximately 550 metres turn right on Dorchester Blvd.   Follow Dorchester until it appears to end (Y in the road) and turn to the right, you will still be on Dorchester Road, continue on Dorchester across the railway tracks, about 75 metres after crossing the tracks you will see a trail going into the woods. It will be marked.
