Hopkin’s Woods is a landscape of rolling glacial dunes and planes located to the north of Spencer Creek. This Special Protection Area is a combination woodland/wetland and completely encompasses one of the sub-watersheds of Cootes Paradise, Mink Brook, and portions of the Borers Creek watershed. Hopkin’s Woods includes floodplain ponds, swamp forest, old growth forest and a large area of cultural lands now in spruce plantations requiring ecological restoration.
