Bronte Creek Provincial Park - little known facts

Trillium Trail

Oakville, Ontario L6M, Canada

Created By: Bronte Creek Provincial Park


Walking the trails of Bronte Creek Provincial Park is an excellent way to explore the park and see all its unique natural landscapes and wildlife.

In late April to early May - take a stroll and see the forest floor carpeted with Large White Trilliums. This is the best place in the park to see spring wildflowers and catch the breathtaking glimpse of the valley floor. Wheelchair and stroller friendly.

Little Known Fact: Trillium seeds are primarily dispersed by ants.

This dispersal method is known as Myrmecochory (try saying that three times fast!).

Ants are attracted to the protein-rich elaiosome on the seeds of trilliums, which they eat after carrying the entire seed back to their nests. The actual seeds are not harmed during this process, and are later discardedby the ant, allowing them to grow a new plant.
