    1. Hamilton: Crawford Lake Picnic (all-day) @ Crawford Lake
      Jul 26

      Everyone is invited to a wonderful historic and geographic site: Crawford Lake, located at 3115 Conservation Rd. Milton. This is just a 4 minute drive, north of the Derry Road/Guelph Line intersection, on Guelph Line.

      This is where longhouses have been built on their original sites. They are large and cool in the summer. Come and see the way the families lived together in these reconstructed homes.

      Crawford Lake is a meromictic lake, which means that it was a lake within a cave of limestone before glaciation. The top of the cave was ground off, leaving this beautiful lake with limestone walls behind. There are wooden walking pathways around the lake. It is a beautiful sight during any season.

      Time: 2:30 p.m. (Gates open at 10 a.m. so come earlier if you like to explore on your own)
      Tour: 3:00 p.m. starting time; meet at the Interpretive Centre
      Food: Bring something to share for our pot luck picnic. Store items in a cooler. Bring your own plates, cutlery and a beverage.
      Eating location: The Gathering Room, in the Interpretive Centre. It has a microwave and a small kitchen. This is a comfortable room for our food and eating time together. We have rented this facility from 3:00 – 6 p.m.
