Jane Goodall Reclamation Trail


COCaledonTrailway_2L

This trail, named in honour of the internationally renowned scientist and environmentalist, Jane Goodall, is located at the Coniston Welcome Centre.

This trail is part of the Greater Sudbury Trail system known as Rainbow Routes. The mission of the Rainbow Routes is to develop and preserve trail for the betterment of the people of the City of Sudbury, and the enjoyment of visitors and nature lovers alike.

As you walk along this 1 km trail, you will encounter projects dating from 1979 which were initiated to heal the landscape. In 1978, this site was totally bare of vegetation. Logging, followed by the smelting of nickel/copper ore, which produced noxious emissions of sulphur dioxide, depleted the vegetation and allowed soil erosion to occur.

Through the efforts of the Sudbury Land Reclamation Program, this site has been transformed into a startlingly beautiful trail.
