The Wainfleet Bog is a provincially significant wetland and is the largest least disturbed bog remaining within the Carolinian region of Southwestern Ontario. This rare ecosystem provides habitat to a variety of unique plants and animals, as well as a suite of recreational uses. The Wainfleet Bog Conservation Area was acquired by the NPCA in 1996 and is the largest of its conservation areas at approximately 2,000 acres.
