Manitoulin Nature Club

Town: Manitoulin Island

Ontario Nature Region: Northern - West

Since the early 1970s, the club has been active in conservation issues on Manitoulin Island "the largest freshwater island in the world." This 130 kilometre-long island features a wide variety of natural habitats including lakeshore, islands, wetlands, limestone pavement (alvar), and the Niagara Escarpment.

The clubs provides a forum for those with an interest in nature and for those concerned about conservation. We have supported conservation projects such as the Misery Bay Nature Reserve Provincial Park, the new Coastal Alvar project and the Cup & Saucer Trail. We have also offered assistance to the landowner in conserving the Carter Bay Dunes. Guided field trips to see local birds and plants, including some very popular boat trips, are organized for members and visitors. We have an annual picnic each summer and a potluck supper in December. The club has run the annual Mindemoya Christmas Bird Count since 1974. Meetings, usually with guest speaers, are held on the last Friday evening of each month from September to April in Mindemoya. We welcome members from throughout Manitoulin Island, both year-round residents and summer visitors.
