Welcome to Long Point, the world’s longest freshwater sand spit
The Long Point Biosphere Reserve is an area of global ecological significance that makes an ongoing commitment to the United Nations to strive for sustainability. Visitors and residents are inspired to coexist in harmony with nature.
It is located in Norfolk County, on the north shore of Lake Erie in the heart of Carolinian Canada.
Hosting more endangered species per-capita than the rest of Canada, it is home to the greatest number of plants and animals and the highest densities of wildlife in all of Canada.
The Long Point Biosphere Reserve encompasses Ontario’s only designated Priority Place, an Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) program that emphasizes local partnerships to achieve long-lasting protection and recovery of species at risk.
Long Point Biosphere Reserve is a non-profit registered Canadian charity. We are a community-based organization that works with partners in our region to preserve biodiversity, champion climate action, and support a healthy economy through sustainable development.
We partner with conservation groups, our indigenous neighbours, and education providers to care for our shared air, land, and water.
We invite you to get involved!
