We live in an urban setting, a city of about 360,000. Luckily we live in Pond Mills, a suburb that includes the Westminister/ Pond Mills Environmentally Significant Area, which is also a class 1 Provincially Significant Wetland (no one can bulldoze it and build houses). The ESA is significant for its size and for its great variety of natural habitats. There are six major ponds and a number of smaller ones scattered throughout the forests, wetlands and marsh.
My daughter, granddaughter and I often hike there. It's all about 2 blocks from our house.
