The 50 acre Foster reserve was received as a donation to EBC in order to further protect the Niagara Escarpment Natural Area.
Foster is located within the Keefer Creek Watershed which is rated by Grey Sauble Conservation as excellent for both surface water quality and forest conditions. There has been no logging in almost 100 years and no human activity on this land since 1981! It is a swamp forest in low-lying parts dominated by a variety of tree species such as maples, yellow birch, speckled alder, black cherry, eastern white cedar, white spruce and American elm. This swamp forest provides ample potential habitat to countless flora and fauna, now protected from destruction.
The property is located in the Township of Sydenham, Municipality of Meaford, County of Grey
