Leaving a legacy at SMNA

The tradition continues. Six years ago (2017), through very generous grants from Ontario Power Generation, the Samuel Wilmot Nature Area started planting wildflowers and pollinators along the shoreline in the Port and in SWNA. There are now well over 3000 plants in these areas. On Saturday, May 27, Lindsay Hamilton and her daughter Sophia Dafos were among the SWNA volunteers who planted well over 500 wildflower plants: Liatris – (Blazing Star); Monarda (Beebalm or Bergamot); Coreopsis Lanceolata; Aster-Novae (New England Aster); Rudbeckia Hurta (Blackeyed Susan) and Rudbeckia Linciata (Cutleaf Coneflower )
