The sign reads, "On the West Ravine Nature Trails you will see examples of remnant oak woodland communities on the upland slopes and locally significant wetland communities within and surrounding Grenadier Pond. / These plant communities offer the opportunity to view many rare species of plants and wild-flowers including Black Oak, Wild Lupine, Cup-pland and Sweet Flag. They also provide habitat for wildlife including birds, animals, fish and insects. / There is no provision for lighting on the nature trails. These trails are intended for daytime use only. We recommend that you enjoy secluded areas in the company of friends. / Please help us maintain our unique natural resource by observing the following guidelines: * Stay on the designated trails; these trails are covered with wood chips. * Leave plans and wildlife for others to enjoy. * Do not ride bicycles through the nature trails. * Put litter in the bins provided." The lower sign reads, "Caution / Beware: Coyotes are known to be in this area. Please do not feed or approach the coyotes." Photo looking southwest.
