Francis Hilb Preserve
This Preserve on Goulais Bay (Che Wehn Kwe Dohn) offers an enjoyable walk to learn about Lake Superior wetlands. It includes a woodland trail, a boardwalk to the lakeshore and picturesque places to sit and observe nature. Come photograph, paint, read, write and birdwatch.
Wetlands are very important habitat for many reasons. Their rarity on Lake Superior’s rocky and sandy shores makes this Preserve important to the overall health of the lake. Our educational programs connect people to the stories of how wetlands protect species, how peatlands hold carbon, and how diverse habitat provides homes for a wide array of wildlife.
To protect the wetland from invasive species, the Invasive Species Centre provided LSWC with a boot brush station which is installed at the trailhead to remove unwanted hitchhikers from the shoes of visitors.
