Nature Flooding at the Aurora Community Arboretum - The Wet Look

Flooding at the Aurora Community Arboretum – The Wet Look

We are currently experiencing heavy May (2017) showers, that according to the weatherman will continue until Sunday. Potential spring flooding. So far, not too cold and not too warm, just perfect temperature for a steady unveiling of spring’s greens. The green picture is being painted as we speak.

Today I volunteer in the school. It’s annual swimming program organized by the school. Three shifts of kids walk from school through the Community Arboretum to the Aurora Family Leasure Complex every Friday. Looks like we had to take some alternative route because of some flooding on the trails.

This is not a first time Aurora Community Arboretum area near AFLC has been flooded like that. The area is almost like a valley, and water naturally will flow to the lower areas. However, I also observed in the past that the high water levels dissipate fast. Some paddles remains, but the high water is carried away by the river. Walking in this area may also be dangerous.

The East Branch of the Holland River begins its journey through the Lake Simcoe Watershed at its headwaters to the south of Aurora in the Oak Ridges Moraine and flows north through the Arboretum from Wellington Street to St. John’s Sideroad. The river continues north until it enters Lake Simcoe at Cook’s Bay.” Source: The East Holland River
