EBC took an interest in protecting Manitoulin Island at the very beginning. The Niagara Escarpment extends onto Manitoulin Island, then loops around back down through upper Michigan and Wisconsin. EBC recognized the need for protection of this natural geological feature. We started with the purchase of the Cup and Saucer Nature Preserve. This preserve is beautiful with Escarpment features, amazing views and an adventure trail for those interested in exploring this amazing place. Our work on Manitoulin has expanded to protect significant alvar features, Lake Huron shoreline, wetlands and lakes.

In the last 5 years, EBC has secured the protection of large wildland areas such as Willisville Mountain, Heaven's Gate, Michael's Bay, Lake Wolsey and other nature preserves. We have just updated our trail maps and all are welcome to visit them!
