Featured Nature Reserve of the month: Cape Hurd - Barney Lake
History: Barney Lake Nature Reserve is located on the Northern Bruce Peninsula, near Tobermory. It is over 400 acres and was acquired by EBC over a number of years beginning in 2002. After acquiring the lake as part of a 300-acre acquisition donated by a family in Owen Sound, we eventually added the 50-acre Meyer property by purchase, the 42-acre Hackney property with support from Nature Conservancy and the Hobson property right to the shore with a donation from Emily Hobson and support from Environment Canada in 2015.
