The Bruce Peninsula’s Western Shoreline

The Oliphant coastline is complex of bays and a series of islands, known as The Fishing Islands. The islands and reefs protect the bays from intense wave energy. Due to this reduced wave action, the bays of the shoreline are fringed with coastal meadow marshes, or coastal fens, and narrow low sand beaches. The coastal fens here are considered globally rare and imperiled communities.
