Ojibway Prairie Provincial Nature Reserve



The goal of the Ojibway Prairie Provincial Nature Reserve is to "ensure the protection and perpetuation of a unique example of tallgrass prairie and prairie/savannah environment in Ontario...for educational purposes and as gene pools for research in order to benefit present and future generations." This provincial park supports a plant community like no other in the province. More rare plants per hectare are found here than at any other park in Ontario.

A raised platform at the perimeter of the Nature Reserve offers a vantage point to view the sprawling prairie/savanna landscape. A narrow trail begins here and winds through the Nature Reserve allowing visitors a close-up look at the multitude of wildflowers and wildlife. Every week from May to October, new species come into bloom. Three metre tall wildflowers, Big Bluestem and Indian grass line sections of the path in August and September.
