The Brook Never Sleeps
A hands on presentation/eco-workshop on the local ecology for ages 10 and up at the Uxbridge Youth Centre on March 15th, 11am to 3pm. Get up close and personal with the Uxbridge Brook.
This is an opportunity to learn about the brook first hand, see a video premier chronicling "the creek that runs under Uxbridge" and enjoy a free pizza lunch.
The Uxbridge Brook watershed covers an area of 178 sq KM. From its headwaters in the Oak Ridges Moraine it flows north through Uxbridge passing under Brock St and through Wagners Lake, Udora, and Pefferlaw on its way north to Lake Simcoe.
Early Settlers in the Uxbridge area used this and other streams and rivers to supply power for lumber and grist mills. While some dams have been replaced over the years as flood control, remnants of some of the old dams still remain.
The headwaters of the brook have been identified by the Ministry of Natural Resources as an important coldwater fishery source
