What’s in Our Spring 2020 Issue

In his first feature article for us, Joe D. Shorthouse, professor of entomology, or the study of insects, teaches us about the only three wild, native roses that grow near the Escarpment. Joe’s feature and beautiful photos show and tell us everything we need to know to identify them, even though they look remarkably alike. […]Read More

What’s Hot from Autumn 2019

Content from our Autumn 2019 issue is now available for free here on our website. Our cover story was Art Weaver’s beautiful and controversial (!) look at Niagara Glen Nature Reserve.

Size of the Niagara Escarpment

The wonderful Bruce Trail has helped make the Niagara Escarpment famous. Its free footpath follows the Niagara Escarpment from Queenston, Ont. north to Tobermory, and is about 885 km long. But the Niagara Escarpment covers much more territory than this! The Niagara Escarpment is actually an international landform that starts in western New York State, […]Read More
