Canada South Land Trust

Town: Windsor

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian West

Canada South Land Trust celebrates our unique southerly natural heritage.

Natural areas within the City of Windsor, Essex County, Pelee Island and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent are all located in the Carolinian Canada forest zone, which is roughly delineated south of a line running from Grand Bend to Toronto. The southerly location and moderate climate of this region is the main reason for such a unique and diverse ecosystem. Although the Carolinian fores zone is quite small in comparison with other vegetation zones, it hosts a greater number of floral and faunal species than any other ecosystem in Canada (Carolinian Canada, 2006). It is estimated that approximately 2,200 species of herbaceous plants are found here and there are seventy difference species of trees alone. Approximately 400 bird species have been recorded in the zone over half of the bird species in all of Canada (Carolinian Canada, 2006).

The Canada South Land Trust was established to preserve natural areas within Southwestern Ontario in the City of Windsor, Essex County, Pelee Island and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent for future generations.
