The Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail

Erie Coastal Stewardship Eco TrailExplore the hidden treasures of Canada’s south coast on the Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail.  From Essex to Niagara, Lake Erie’s 600 km shore reveals little-known riches from globally rare species to world biosphere habitats.  EcoTrail sites let you experience some of Canada’s most outstanding natural diversity, fascinating heritage, and unique scenic adventures.  Spearheaded by Carolinian Canada with many partners, the sites tell stories of an evolving landscape, species loss and survival, vibrant and dangerous waters, innovative local communities and caring landowners. The EcoTrail invites you to discover and be part of a healthy coast.
