Once you hit the trails and start to explore you soon realize Fletcher Creek has more to offer then just trails. Fletcher Creek is the home to Hamilton’s’ only Fen. This one of a kind Eco System produces some really special plants. Two interesting carnivorous plants I happen to come across while I was exploring were: the Pitcher plant – (Sarracenia purpurea) and the round leaved Sundew - (Drosera rotundifolia)

Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is a precious property that needs to be enjoyed, cherished and protected for many generations to come. Grab your sweater, hiking shoes and come enjoy a cool place on a cool day.
