Bruce Peninsula National Park – Dorcas Bay Road (Tobermory)

The Saugeen Bruce Peninsula has long been recognized as a special place. World renowned for its diversity of orchids and ferns, this area is one of the Great Lakes’ biodiversity “hotspots”, and is one of the most intact natural landscapes in Ontario south of the Canadian Shield. The area is composed of forest, wetland, shoreline and globally rare alvar (thin soil over limestone bedrock) habitats, and is home to many species at risk, including the globally rare lakeside daisy and the Massasauga rattlesnake.
