McMaster University’s parking lot in the west campus sits atop the floodplain for Ancaster Creek, metres away from Cootes Paradise. Lot M, N, O and P collectively buried a former nature sanctuary owned by the Royal Botanical Gardens known as Coldspring Valley.
OPIRG’s Coordinator of Volunteers Randy Kay will be presenting a history of the area this Thursday for the Dundas Valley Historical Society. More than a history, this talk will provide a window into ongoing positive developments that could bring back much of the natural glory to this special but degraded valley.
