The Long Point Basin Land Trust (LPBLT) provides a helping hand to wild species and ecosystems in one of Ontario’s most naturally diverse regions. Our part of Ontario’s “deep south” Carolinian natural region is renowned for its birds, butterflies, reptiles and plants. It has everything from savanna and tall grass prairie to beautiful woodlands, wetlands, streams, and, of course, miles of Lake Erie shoreline.
But in a region where north meets south and biodiversity blooms, the Carolinian Region has more species at risk than anywhere else in Ontario. And while we are fortunate to have some relatively large natural areas locally, the vital habitats that support nature and ecosystems in the Long Point Basin have been vastly diminished in size and quality.
That’s why the work of the Long Point Land Trust is so important. We help to protect and to restore natural areas by working with landowners to enhance habitats, create nature reserves to protect critically important areas, and help everyone understand more about the wild spaces, natural systems and creatures in our area through education and citizen science projects.
