One of the prettiest views of an Oak Ridges Moraine kettle lake, in King Township, is to be found on the south side of the  17th Sideroad, north-east of Nobleton.   It is part of the Starcliff Nature Reserve, an 18-acre property donated to the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust by Beth Harper and family in 2005.   In addition to the kettle lake, the site is also designated as a provincially significant wetland.   The Land Trust is assisted in its work at Starcliff by A Rocha, a religious organization that assists with community-based conservation projects.   Starcliff is not open to the public but volunteers can work on A Rocha projects from time-to-time.   Interested volunteers can contact A Rocha at
