Recreational Activities Available


The Humberstone Marsh Conservation Area is 202 acre (82 hectares) located in the City of Port Colborne protecting wetlands and area waterways. Enhanced by the presence of the nearby Onandaga Escapment, this peat/muck filled basin is one of only three such features on the Niagara Peninsula (others being Wainfleet Bog and Willoughby Marsh). Passive recreational activities including bird watching and seasonal hunting can be enjoyed here. No trails or washroom facilities are developed at this wilderness area.
