On September 29, 2021 a new sign was unveiled at the Clendenan Conservation Area. With the generous support of the local Nature League, Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA) staff were able to research, design and have a new sign fabricated. This sign highlights history of the dam, the property features and a local hero for the environment and past Nature League member – Malcolm Kirk. Mac Kirk worked throughout his career to secure lands for conservation and appreciation and was instrumental at GSCA in this role. The Nature League directors took part in a cheque presentation and their President Rose Feaver along with Tim Lanthier, CAO for GSCA unveiled the new sign. Rebecca Ferguson, Lands Manager for GSCA, shared the history of the property along with information about the dam’s role in flooding/frazil ice management and fish migration and then took members on a guided hike along the trails on the property.
Support from groups like the Nature League is so very much appreciated, it allows GSCA to create new interpretive signage that provides a great engagement and education opportunity for the public when they visit a Conservation Area. The Nature League also sponsored a sign at GSCA’s Feversham Gorge – Madeleine Graydon Memorial Conservation Area in 2019.
