Join Us for a BioBlitz at our Sauble Dunes Nature Reserve!

You are invited to a BioBlitz at our Sauble Dunes Nature Reserve on Saturday, May 27th to identify the diverse flora and fauna on this property! Located inland from the eastern shore of Lake Huron on the Bruce Peninsula, the Sauble Dunes is one of the best remaining beach ridges, sand plains, sand dunes and swales in the region. It is home to several provincially rare plant species including long-leaved reed grass, dwarf lake iris and stiff yellow flax. It also provides habitat for Massasauga rattlesnake, red-shouldered hawk and Cooper's hawk.

This is a fantastic opportunity for novice naturalists and individuals interested in the local flora and fauna to have a hands-on learning experience with expert biologists.
