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 Reserve. This reserve 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. EBC is also working to protect the La Cloche/Killarney range of silica mountains as featured in our new Willisville Mountain Reserve on Highway 6. We have extensive trails on many of these nature reserves and all are welcome!
