Our Nature Preserves

Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy protects wilderness along the Niagara Escarpment, up the Bruce Peninsula, onto Manitoulin Island and beyond. We protect many kilometres of Lake Huron shoreline and inland sites in Simcoe, Grey and Bruce Counties. Approximately one quarter of these protected conservation areas are privately owned, and the rest are owned by us. Most of our preserves are publicly accessible! We try to limit human disturbance on others that are ecologically sensitive.

To protect fragile ecosystems, we discourage or prohibit camping, hunting, campfires, motorized vehicles and collecting on our sites, except where specifically permitted. To fully enjoy our properties, we encourage you to participate as a steward - or hike one of our maintained trails!
