Niagara Region is best known for the mighty Niagara Falls, which captivates millions of people every year. However, Niagara's other natural gems are equally as spectacular:

The Niagara Escarpment- A World Biosphere Reserve coated in old-growth forests containing pockets of scenic waterfalls and gorges.

Carolinian Forests- In Niagara, you are in the Carolinian Life Zone, characterized by species of plants and animals found nowhere else in the country.

Niagara's Wetlands- These ecosystems are ancient, beautiful, and incredibly valuable for Niagara's wildlife populations, including migratory birds, tree frogs, and turtles.

Shorelines- Niagara Peninsula is surrounded on three sides by the enormous freshwater features of Lake Ontario, the Niagara River, and Lake Erie, including beaches.
