Description: This late summer hike will showcase the diverse wildlife and habitats present at the Garry Fen Trail, with an emphasis on woody plants.  The trail begins on calcareous upland, continues along the fen boardwalk with bog-like flora present, and then winds through various wet and drier habitats on the return.  This is one section of the approximately 15km-long Glengarry Trails system, which are well worth the drive to visit from Ottawa.  This is a rain or shine event, so please dress for the weather/conditions.
