In January 2009, the split-receipting transaction was completed with Dr. David and Mrs. Molly Pelton.
Location: Northumberland County, Alnwick/Haldimand Township, Part of Lot 13, Concession 8 and Part of Lot 14, Concession 8 with access easement in Lot 15, Concession 8
Size: 52 acres or 21 hectares.
History: We now have another 52 acres under preservation on the Oak Ridges Moraine, adjacent to Peter’s Woods Provincial Park. This property, in the Municipality of Alnwick/Haldimand, lies within the “Natural Core Area” of the Oak Ridges Moraine Plan and almost entirely within the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. The property includes wetlands and a watercourse which are shared with PWPP and form a tributary to the headwater of the Burnley Creek, thus creating a natural corridor between the two.
The severed land will be managed as a nature reserve next door to the existing PWPP. The retained land will continue as private forest and cropland, but without any residential use.
