Lorne C Henderson Trail


The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority was one of ten Conservation Authorities to receive a grant to undertake work to help protect Species at Risk in Ontario. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources recently approved 85 projects among many organizations located throughout Ontario for a total of $3 million.

“Our project will involve an inventory of trees which are threatened, rare or endangered on Conservation Authority owned lands,” Donald Craig, Conservation Authority Forester said. “The Conservation Authority owns or manages 1,800 hectares of land in the region. These lands fall within the Carolinian Forest Region which is one of the most species diverse areas in Canada,” Craig said. One of the important roles of conservation authorities is to introduce Ontarians to nature through trails. The Lorne C. Henderson Conservation Area is a birders delight.

Over 5 km of nature trails wind through a variety of habitats including grasslands, floodplain and upland forest and along wildlife ponds. Henderson is located 5 minutes west of Petrolia on County Road # 4.
