Elbow Lake – Loughborough Wilderness Block

Loughborough Wilderness Block is a group of NCC properties located in the heart of the Frontenac Arch Natural Area and provides key habitat connectivity. The properties are situated between two existing core protected areas within the Natural Area – the Frontenac Provincial Park and Queen’s University Biology Station– and feature extremely rugged terrain characteristic of the Frontenac Arch with high domed granite and metamorphic ridges with deep wooded valleys, and lowland and shoreline wetlands including beaver ponds, marshes, wooded swamps and bogs. These properties support a multitude of species at risk including Eastern Whip-poor-will, Eastern Ratsnake, and the Five-lined Skink among others.
