NCC Land Expanded on Bruce Peninsula

Bruce Peninsula | by Kevin Bernard  

Two properties south of Tobermory now controlled by Nature Conservancy of Canada

Two Bruce Peninsula areas have been added to the mix of lands controlled by the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

Spokesperson Nicole Senyi says the properties are south of Tobermory and they contain significant wetlands.

The 99 acre Cape Hurd Fens (correct) and Forest southwest of Tobermory, is a stopover point for many migrating waterfowl.

It also is a habitat for the massasauga rattlesnake and the American Black Bear.

The other property which is now under the N.C.C.  is Dwarf Lake Iris Nature Reserve in the Dyers Bay area.

It has one of the largest populations of dwarf lake iris in the area.

It is a small violet-coloured flower that blooms in late May and early June.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada has 2.8 million acres across Canada under its protection and 14,600 acres in the Bruce Peninsula area.
