DURHAM: – September 21st, 2016 – Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) will close a number of trails in the Main Tract in Durham Regional Forest from September 26th to November 18th, 2016, inclusive. The Main Tract of the Durham Regional Forest is located between Concession 7 and Lakeridge Road, south of Goodwood Road, in the Township of Uxbridge.
In order to promote the growth of saplings and the overall health of the Durham Regional Forest, LSRCA will be conducting selective thinning during the course of this closure. Thinning is a requirement of the restoration plans for this property and will ensure a healthy mature forest is protecting our watershed.
Details of the affected areas will be posted on signs at the Main Tract, on LSRCA’s website, and in the display panels at the Durham Regional Forest Main Tract and Timbers Tract. Warning signs will also be posted in the work area. Trail users are asked to observe the warning signs in the posted areas for their own safety.

The mission of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority is to work with our community to protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed, by leading research, policy and action.
