Speaker: MARTIN TAMLYN, Ignatius Old Growth Forest Project Manager
The Ignatius Centre’s Old Growth Forest, at the northern edge of Guelph, is a 93-acre nature sanctuary of trails,
forests, meadows, wetlands and waterways. It is protected by a Conservation Easement with the Ontario Farmland Trust. The Project’s goal is to restore and protect these diverse ecological communities and to assist the regeneration of retired farmland, from old-field meadow to old-growth forest. Through ecological restoration, we can restore
our own connection to the natural world.
About the speaker: Martin Tamlyn trained as an elementary school teacher in the UK before moving to Canada in 2000.
