On the Lake Erie shoreline in Norfolk County, Strongman – Guiler Nature Reserve is a beautiful 52-acre site along Fisher’s Creek. It includes Carolinian woodlands, deep ravines, 1400 feet of shoreline and impressive bluffs and beaches. With intensive development pressure on lakefront areas, this property has given us a rare opportunity to protect in perpetuity a large and ecologically-significant natural area.

The different types of habitat found here link terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems along Fisher’s Creek, and create a wildlife corridor from the shoreline to areas such as Spooky Hollow Nature Reserve, Fisher’s Glen Conservation Area and Turkey Point Provincial Park. The reserve protects woodlands, red cedar savanna, cold-water fish habitat, coastal beaches and active sand bluffs, as well as habitat for species at risk and other flora and fauna.

The Strongman-Guiler nature reserve can be accessed through Front Rd. From Hwy 24, turn south onto Fisher’s Glen Rd., just south of Vittoria. Turn right onto Front Rd. in the town of Fisher’s Glen, the reserve is on the south side of the road.
