The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation is dedicated to conserving biodiversity, promoting sustainable communities and partnering in research, monitoring, outreach and education within the Long Point Biosphere.
The LPWBRF is a non-profit, charitable organization that works with and within the community to protect and promote the unique history, culture and natural features of the Long Point region. We have several projects on the go such as construction of wildlife fencing and culverts on Long Point Causeway, the “Amazing Places” in Norfolk, the “Ambassador Award” for Sustainable Tourism and our document library.

The Long Point Causeway Improvement Project is a community-based effort to revitalize the 3.5 kilometre-long causeway that links the Long Point Peninsula on Lake Erie with mainland southern Ontario.
Amazing Places are must-visit destinations that are rich in natural history, have breathtaking scenery, and are home to extraordinary wildlife. Be inspired as we reveal secrets and interesting stories about these places as part of a provincial UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Sustainable Tourism initiative.
This collaborative community based initiative examines current and emerging ecosystem stressors, identifies best management practices, and suggests strategies to restore damaged ecosystems in the Long Point area.
The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation received funding in 2015 for the development of a Digital Library. The purpose of this library is to enable researchers, conservation practitioners, and the general public to access historic and current information on environmental management, research, and monitoring pertinent to the Long Point Area. A parallel initiative is to update the Long Point Bibliography to provide a central document outlining all research conducted around, or related to, the Long Point area.
