McSporran Nature Reserve
In 2007 the McSporrans completed a conservation severance with EBC. In doing so, they retained the northern half of their property and donated the southern 58 acres to EBC. This nature reserve has the Saugeen River crossing through on a north south trajectory starting midway through the southern boundary. This reserve plays an important ecological function in the landscape context, providing riparian and upland forest cover along one of southern Ontario’s largest river systems. The site contains confluence of the main Saugeen River and the Deer Creek providing natural corridor linkage for two major watersheds. Starting in Paisley, head south on ON-3. Continue south until you reach Brant Elderslie where you will head east. Continue to the left on the fork over the bridge. Here you will pass the northern owner retained property on your right, continue until you reach Sideroad 10 N and head south. Make your first right onto Concession 14 East and continue until the road ends. Park here at the southeast corner of the reserve and head to the river!
