The Oak Ridges Moraine

The Oak Ridges Moraine extends from Caledon in the west to Castleton in the east, running north of Toronto and south of Rice Lake. This 12,000 year old glacial feature is made of sands and gravels deposited by melt-waters running off a huge ice sheet at the end of the last ice age. The landscape covers numerous aquifers below the ground and beautiful rolling hills above.

The Oak Ridges Moraine Photo Club is an opportunity for you to view and contribute photographic information about this geological feature and its many import attributes.

This site is a project of the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust and is designed to encourage photographers of every level to get outside to explore, discover and share this incredibly unique landform. The Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust works with private landowners to protect these precious lands forever. Learn more about the Trust and committed landowners here.
