|Location:||Lambton Shores, Ontario|
Lambton Shores is blessed with 'Gems of Nature' on the northern fringes of the 'Carolinian Life Zone'. An area south of the imaginary line between Grand Bend and Toronto. This zone represents less than 1% of Canada's landmass, but is home to the largest diversity of fauna & flora species in the country. This small part of Canada in southwestern Ontario also has the largest number of species at risk in the country. Our 'Gems of Nature' are unique. They include miles of sandy beaches along the southeastern shores of Lake Huron, bare & forested dune lands, freshwater coastal wetlands, rare Oak Savanna, steep & forested ravines in river and creek valleys, remnant prairies of tall grass and wildflowers, spherical concretions of 'Kettles' in black shale beds, Brachiopod & Trilobite fossils of the Devonian Period. They offer sights of majestic Tundra Swans & soaring Eagles, amazing Flying Squirrels, beautiful butterflies & damselflies, endangered turtles & hognose snakes, fish & mussel species-at-risk, Sassafras & Tulip trees. And then there are those unforgettable sunsets!
