About Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy

EBC is the largest Ontario-focused, charitable land trust protecting the Niagara Escarpment. EBC protects over 23,000 acres of land, on 229 nature preserves. We help Canada meet its biodiversity and land conservation targets.

EBC protects $34,000,000 of ecosystem services* annually

EBC protects 20 km of Lake Huron shoreline from development

EBC protects 14 km of Niagara Escarpment slope (45 nature reserves totalling 3,146 acres)

EBC has operated since 1997 following a working board model. Since its inception, the directors have been the officers of the corporation, which is a big part of how we keep our operating costs exceptionally low. The Chair has always been the EBC's CEO and the Treasurer has always been its CFO, responsible for the fiscal health of the organization. EBC's cash position has never been stronger - but buying and maintaining land in Ontario is expensive. Please donate to support our mission.
