The Bruce Peninsula is known as a biodiversity hot spot among nature enthusiasts in Ontario. It has the Niagara Escarpment along its eastern shores and alvar, rocky shorelines to the west. These features, along with the lake's influence, make the Bruce Peninsula an ideal habitat for several species of plants and animals. Species at risk include snakes, plants and turtles and it is a hot spot for orchids. While some of our nature preserves in this area are not open to the public, we have developed trails on a few for the public to enjoy. These trails showcase the beauty of the area including pristine Lake Huron shore, alvars and wetlands. EBC also has nature preserves along the Lake Huron shore and rivers throughout Bruce County.
