Silver Creek Conservation Area

Silver Creek Conservation Area is Credit Valley Conservation’s largest land holding. It protects many significant natural features including the headwaters of Silver Creek, a Credit River tributary. This area includes a large Niagara Escarpment valley and many representative features of the area’s natural splendor. Wander past babbling brooks, lush forests, and escarpment rocks as you explore this little taste of wilderness near urban and rural settings.
Thanks to provincial funding, hard work and volunteer hours, we now enjoy a new addition at Silver Creek Conservation Area; a 120-metre boardwalk built to protect the pond’s sensitive shoreline from trail widening and soil compaction. A 25-metre U-shaped dock was also added to allow for access to the pond for the Silver Creek Education Centre’s pond dipping studies. In order to protect the threatened amphibians that live here and in the surrounding area, this project became a necessity. Wildlife viewing is now safer for both animals and visitors.
