2020 Nature Matters!

Nature Matters! is a project organized by PEPtBO that brings together local environmental, naturalist
and outdoor organizations in a series of public events.

     The Prince Edward County South Shore Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) is a globally significant area that comprises over 40km of Lake Ontario shoreline, and 90 square kilometers of land and water habitat.  Join with local groups for a whole season of events and activities.  We invite the community to appreciate, celebrate and protect the natural world in and around the South Shore IBA.
