 Long Point Biosphere Celebrates 30 Years

April 1986-2016

Striking Balance

A Documentary Series Celebrating Canada's Biosphere Reserves
Reaching forty kilometres into Lake Erie, Long Point in Ontario Canada is the world’s longest freshwater sand spit. How the Point’s endless beaches endure as a natural oasis, here in Canada’s most densely populated region, is a feat that involves more than just your typical environmentalists. This is a story of hunters, farmers, foresters, birders, biologists, and just about everyone else in the Long Point Biosphere Reserve – who have learned from conservation pioneers how to cultivate biodiversity, culture, and an economy, on a foundation of sand.

Digital Library

Providing public access to local resources, research, historic information, and more...
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.
