Oak Ridges Moraine Signs unveiled


NEWMARKET On Tuesday June 1st, staff from the Regional Municipality of York and the Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation will unveil signs across York Region, showing the location of the environmentally significant Oak Ridges Moraine.
 
The 4' x 6'signs were designed to alert passing motorists to the scope and importance of this natural feature, as they are "Entering the Oak Ridges Moraine." 
 
The Moraine is the largest natural heritage feature within York Region, stretching 160 km across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), from Northumberland County in the east to the Niagara Escarpment in the west. Its rolling terrain sustains some of the most significant and distinctive woodlots and wetlands in the GTA.
