Want to Know More About the History of the Speed River Valley Lands and Niska Road?
The Former GRCA Kortright Waterfowl Park lands have a rich and interesting history. Dr. Hugh Whiteley presented a slide show to the Board of the Grand River Conservation Authority on May 22, 2015 that outlined the relationship of the GRCA lands as an integral part of the Hanlon Creek Conservation Area.
Dorothy Griggs and Laura Murr, members of our group, presented a brief history of the former Kortight Waterfowl Park and our area and why we value and want to preserve this beautiful area of Guelph for future generations.
We have posted their May 22, 2015 PowerPoint Presentations:
