morgan's point c. a.Morgan’s Point Conservation Area offers a unique setting of old growth forest and remnants of the oak savannah prairie that once covered large areas of the Niagara Peninsula. Located along the Lake Erie shoreline in Wainfleet, a sand dune complex and rock shoal outcrop provide natural shore protection for the land, as well as habitat for a wide variety of plants, deer, amphibians, reptiles and birds.

The Morgan’s Point boardwalk is designed to minimize human impact on the sensitive sand dune environment. Help us protect this rare site by sticking to the boardwalk and trails.
