Phillips Peel Reserve
EBC acquired this 50-acre property outside the town of Arthur in 2018.
This reserve consists of a conifer plantation, deciduous forest, two ponds, a stream, and several vernal pools as well as Provincially Significant Wetlands, including the Ritch Tract Swamp. It is part of a provincial Natural Heritage System and provides habitat for diverse flora and fauna.
Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlarks have been spotted nearby, and the wetland, pond and conifer habitats are a birder's dream for myriad species to be spotted. Be sure to bring your binoculars!
You can access the Phillips Peel property by travelling southwest of Arthur, west of Highway six and south of Sideroad 18 along 18th Line.
