Niagara Escarpment a World Biosphere Reserve

I love how info sometimes just appears in front of you when you use the Internet. I received a link that goes right to UNESCO’s page on stats & info about the Niagara Escarpment as a Biosphere Reserve.  Here’s their description of it:
     “The Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve in Ontario stretches 725 km from Lake Ontario (near Niagara Falls) to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula (between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron). The Escarpment corridor crosses two major biomes: boreal needle leaf forests in the north and temperate broadleaf forest in the south. It also includes wetland complexes, cliff faces, slopes and aquatic ecosystems.”
     Browse around here for some more interesting facts and figures.
