These hikers made the trek through time – first, back to McMaster’s beginnings in Hamilton, and Mac’s integral relationship with the Royal Botanical Gardens and Cootes Paradise – we also poked around in the possible future, with plans to enlarge the buffer between the parking lots in Lot M and the re-aligned Ancaster Creek – McMaster has indicated they will do a 30metre naturalized buffer starting this spring. Another future includes the idea of turning unused parking at the south-west of Lot M into an outdoor research facility with a focus on rehabilitating wetlands.
