Morgan's Point

Recreational Activities Available

Description

Morgan’s Point Conservation Area offers a unique setting of old growth forest and remnants of the oak savannah prairie that once covered large areas of the Niagara Peninsula. Located along the Lake Erie shoreline in Wainfleet, a sand dune complex and rock shoal outcrop provide natural shore protection for the land, as well as habitat for a wide variety of plants, deer, amphibians, reptiles and birds.

Experience the dunes and the majestic ‘old growth’ Sugar Maple, Black Walnut and Hop Hornbeam trees as you walk the boardwalk and trails. View the lake waterfowl and monarch butterflies as they stop to rest and refuel before crossing the lake during their migration, wade in the waters of Lake Erie, or just lay back, watch the waves, and take in this truly unique natural landscape.

The Morgan’s Point boardwalk is designed to minimize human impact on the sensitive sand dune environment. Help us protect this rare site by sticking to the boardwalk and trails.
