On April 26, 1975, a cool but sunny spring day, Dr. Peter Tasker, LWI’s first President, presided over the official opening of Mandaumin Woods. This was the first property purchased by Lambton Wildlife. It is a 25 acre Carolinian woodlot located just south of the village of Mandaumin.
This property was dedicated to the memory of LWI Conservationist Laura Knight.
Dr. Tasker addressed the group of members and friends.
There was an excellent turn out for this historic event in Lambton Wildlife’s history.Gail and Eric Knight untied the rope to open the woodlot. In the background is Elizabeth Tasker, one of the founding members.
