Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy

Founded in 1997, EBC is Ontario’s 2nd largest land trust. EBC’s 161 reserves span from Caledon to Manitoulin and conserve over 13 thousand acres (53 sq km). EBC fights climate change, safeguards 53 rare and endangered species and provides wild places for hikers, birders, artists and canoeists.

Our mission is to create nature reserves allowing for sustainable, low impact recreation. We work closely with landowners, government and community groups and other environmental groups to attain our goals.

Our work, along with the work of other land trusts, is making a large contribution towards Ontario’s Biodiversity Initiative to protect 17% of our land by 2020. Our focus areas include:

  • Niagara Escarpment (including Manitoulin Island)
  • Huron shore
  • Saugeen Valley
