Dundas EcoPark

Terrific documentary about the part of the world I live in and why I like it so. Nice to see aerial footage of the areas I go wandering in.

Touches on the importance of preserving swathes of nature for the health of the flora and fauna, but also because it improves cities, and the quality of life of the people that inhabit them. This area is part of the area that will be encompassed by the proposed Cootes to Escarpment Park. Also touches on the history of the native inhabitants (the earliest known examples of agriculture in Ontario was found here), and a little of the history of European settlement, such as the creation of the Desjardins Canal.
