Big O Conservation Area Trail


The Big O Drain Tile Company donated this 4.5 hectare (11 acre) property to the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority in 1992. Big O Conservation Area has a variety of habitats and a number of nature trails that allow visitors to hike through these areas. The park is open for day use from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. year-round, free of charge. The Big O Conservation Area is one of southwestern Ontario’s birding ‘hot spots’.

In early May, many species of migratory birds arrive at this conservation area after crossing Lake Erie. In the village of Comber, the Crossroads Restaurant maintains a bird log book where birdwatchers can check which birds have arrived and add species to the log book.

Directions: In Comber, from Crossroads Restaurant, take County Rd. 46 East. Turn right onto Windsor, turn right onto Elizabeth. Entrance is on the South side of the road Information provided by the Lower Thames Valley Conservation website.
