In his first feature article for us, Joe D. Shorthouse, professor of entomology, or the study of insects, teaches us about the only three wild, native roses that grow near the Escarpment. Joe’s feature and beautiful photos show and tell us everything we need to know to identify them, even though they look remarkably alike.
We feature one of last year’s garden tours, in the old, stately residential part of Hamilton, right up against the base of the Niagara Escarpment, which they refer to as “the mountain.” The Grand Durand garden tour isn’t held each year, so we’re happy that we caught it last year to share with you this year.
We also present the amazing photos of butterflies and birds that Lois McNaught has been able to take near Burlington and Hamilton. Is it luck or hard work and dedication that lets her capture such beautiful glimpses of nature?
Photographer Chuck Burdick was kind enough to share his special take on some landscapes of the southern part of the Niagara Escarpment. He says he looks for beauty in shape, colour and texture, and that he finds it year round near the Escarpment.
These and more, including the regular column by Bob Barnett of Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy, are all in our Spring 2020 issue. See all these online now from our Back Issues section. Specifically, see https://neviews.ca/spring-2020/ .
