Frontenac Arch Biosphere

Frontenac Arch Biosphere

The Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve is one of Canada’s 15 UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves, among over 550 in 107 countries. All celebrate globally significant natural regions through sustainable community development—healthy environment, culture, society and economy.

The Frontenac Arch is North America’s ancient granite backbone. It links the Adirondack Mountains to the Canadian Shield. The St. Lawrence River floods across the Arch, creating the Thousand Islands, and links Great Lakes to the Atlantic Coast. Here is a natural crossroads of migration corridors where five forest regions merge, creating the most bio-diverse region in Canada.

The Biosphere includes the Thousand Islands, the southern half of the Rideau Canal, and much of the Land O’Lakes—a 2,700 sq. km. region of delightfully natural, culturally vibrant, historically rich towns, villages, farms and forests.
