People and Nature
In Balance

The Frontenac Arch Biosphere was established by the local conservation community to raise awareness about our unique geology and biodiversity, as well as, the people who live here. This is where the Thousand Islands create a land bridge over the river and around the great lakes for animal and bird migration. This is where five forest regions meet, creating a variety of habitats and opportunities for animals and people, alike.
