This property is 0.37 acres, and located in the community of Goble’s Grove, south of Port Elgin, in an area now substantially developed for cottages but retaining many of its ecological features on the large cottage lots
The old Nipissing Lake shoreline runs close to this property and has numerous springs and seeps. This Property is low lying and contains an occasional wetland which lasts until mid-summer. It was spared from development and contains a number of large hemlocks, with smaller Easter White Cedar and Juniper.
It Is important to retain this property in its natural state, to compliment and buffer the undeveloped lot next door and the portions of adjacent properties which have never been developed.
This low-lying Property has a mixture of species requiring good soil, like the very large hemlocks grading through the shrub Juniper down to wetland which has Eastern White Cedar, White Pine, Balsam Fir and to a lesser extent Yellow Birch and Sugar Maple.
The combination of seasonal wetland and forest provide important sources of food, shelter, breeding habitat and travel corridors for a variety of wildlife including birds, mammals, herpetofauna and aquatic species.
The subject Property is located West of Port Elgin, just North of Bruce road 33 and west of Bruce road 25.
