TLB Heirloom Species
Because of the region’s unique features of rock barrens, abundant shorelines and numerous small lakes, wetlands, and ponds, many rare and unique species are found here that rely on this region for survival, such as Ontario’s only lizard, the Five-lined Skink, the Golden Winged Warbler, Whippoorwill, Common Nighthawk, snakes, turtles, and more…
