Over a period of 4 years the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, in collaboration with the Region of Niagara, the Peninsula Field Naturalists and others, worked together on a Natural Areas Inventory. The purpose of the project and resulting document is to provide up-to-date natural areas information that acts as a tremendous benefit in the development of greater environmental awareness within the community and, as a scientifically-defensible baseline for use in planning decisions and policy development. It has built on existing information, confirmed the significance of known sites, and filled information gaps where inventory work was outdated or lacking.
The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s watershed supports a rich diversity of natural features including significant habitats and geological formations, rare plants and animals, and important wildlife corridors.
The Natural Areas Inventory is available here for download in PDF format. Please note that due to its size, the Inventory is in two volumes and can also be downloaded by section for your convenience.
