Everything Old is New Again at Dahl Forest

Dahl Forest is sporting a newly updated logo. As long as Peter Dahl can recall, he remembers his mother, Peggy Dahl, using the logo she created on letters and notes. Peggy Dahl created the logo, shown below in grey tones, to represent Dahl Forest. As stated by her son, Peter Dahl, " The stump represents the destruction (harvesting) of the ancient forest. The tree represents our efforts to re-establish the forest. The songbird represents the healing of nature and return of natural life to the forest. The little bird is singing - joy."
This year, the logo was renewed and updated while keeping the idea and intentions of Peggy Dahl intact.  Thanks to a talented HHLT volunteer, Teghan Griffith, this new logo is now found on our brochures and on new road signs to be installed on Gelert Rd. directing visitors to Dahl Forest. 


... in the years following the purchase of 500 acres of abandoned, soil depleted farmland in the early 1950's, the Dahl family planted over 100,000 trees resulting in the magnificent Dahl Forest we know and love today.    HHLT is proud to be the stewards of this land in perpetuity, for future generations to enjoy.

Barnum Interpretive Signs Installed

Visitors to Barnum Creek Nature Reserve will find that three new interpretive signs have been installed.  One is across from Barnum Creek on the Waterfall Way trail, one at the entrance to the "high fields" and one near the site of the Dugan homestead, near the open area of the Heritage Hike. Thanks to funding from TD Friends of the Environment and information from Margaret Dobrzensky, the late Leopoldina Dobrzensky, Paul Heaven and Sheila Ziman, visitors will learn interesting facts about the historical and ecological significance of the land. 
HHLT trail monitors Rosie and Kris Kadwell, Joan Duhaime and Sheila Ziman had a fun afternoon installing the new signs.
