For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we go back to the very first partner for Service Line Warranties of Canada. Hamilton, Ontario, has been a partner since 2014, and has been a great ambassador of the program for other cities in Ontario. Today we explore a beautiful part of Hamilton – the waterfalls.
Identified by the Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) as “The City of Waterfalls,” Hamilton is home to more than 100 waterfalls. Varying in size, style and accessibility, the waterfalls provide perfect
destinations for hiking or cycling. The HCA provides a long list of maps and guides to get you around the Niagara Escarpment, where most of the falls are located. Self-guided walks are also provided by the HCA. Ranging in distance from about three kilometers to ten kilometers, with challenge levels from easy to difficult, there is a bit of something for everyone to enjoy.
The natural beauty of the waterfalls provide plenty of opportunity to explore and enjoy the great outdoors that Hamilton has to offer; however, if you would like to stay a little longer and enjoy some of the plant and animal life that exists in the Escarpment, you can also take advantage of the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club (HNC). Celebrating their 97th year, the HNC is dedicated to the study, appreciation and conservation of wild plants and animals. During their summers, the club leads walks through local nature areas and is family friendly.
Areas like the Niagara Escarpment are major benefactors of water conservation. Take some time to enjoy this amazing side of the City of Hamilton, and then return home to start helping us all preserve these beautiful areas for generations to come.
Doing something as simple as taking care of a water service line leak quickly to prevent the unnecessary loss of water can help to reduce your water footprint and lend a hand to water conservation.
