Our goal is simple: help Ontario landowners conserve their land.
From Caledon to Manitoulin the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy (EBC) keeps busy creating a legacy of nature. Since 1998 we have created 117 nature reserves protecting a total of 8,870 acres along the Niagara Escarpment.
We are a charity serving communities from Caledon East, through the Saugeen Valley, up the Huron Shore and the Bruce Peninsula, all the way to Silverwater on Manitoulin Island.
Twelve and a half km of Great Lakes shoreline and the habitat of 66 rare and endangered species are now protected thanks to the generosity of our donors. No new houses, no gravel pits, no golf courses, no commercial water-taking, just nature by itself, serene and undisturbed.
Conserving a remarkable place on Manitoulin:
Mrs. J. Budd, in this video, speaks about her wishes to preserve the
beauty of her property on Manitoulin Island and the importance of
conservation. The occasion was the ribbon cutting for her donation of
the conservancy agreement to EBC. The property has alvars, wetlands,
and the start of the Niagara Escarpment on Manitoulin.
