Boardwalk/ Meadow trail for hiking Morgan's Point Conservation Area is a significant parcel of land located in Wainfleet on the shores of Lake Erie. The site is designated as part of the regional environmentally sensitive area with a significant dune community and natural plant communities.
Remnants of oak savannah prairie habitat that once covered large areas of the Niagara Peninsula are being protected at Morgan's Point. Several other fragile species that rely on the sensitive sand dune environment can be seen along the Lake Erie Shoreline.
This site is one of the few remaining public access points to Lake Erie, and also plays an important role as a stopover for migrating birds and butterflies. Morgan's Point Conservation Area provides a unique eco-tourism venue, distinctive educational opportunities, and is a magnificent place to explore nature with an established trail and boardwalk to minimize impacts.
The lakefront bedrock shoal outcrop, sand dunes, tall grass meadow, woodlot and open areas lend to the sites' passive uses of hiking, bird and butterfly watching and nature appreciation. This conservation area is an exquisite site for the naturalist in all of us.
