Essex Region Conservation owns or manages 19 publicly accessible properties totaling more than 1000 hectares (4000 acres) of land, as well as nearly 100 kilometers of trail. We protect some of the most important greenways, woodlands and wetlands in the Place for Life. As the most southern part of Canada, our region is home to rich Carolinian woodlands, lush cattail marshes, and unique prairie environments found in very few other Canadian settings. These natural areas provide habitat for a wide range of bird, plant and animal species.

Conservation Areas help people lead healthier lifestyles by providing places to be active while connecting with nature, which has proven mental, physical and spiritual health benefits. They also contribute to the local economy as tourist attractions, attracting visitors to our region to experience birding, hiking, cycling and swimming.
