The Niagara Escarpment has been here forever.

Help keep it forever.

The Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Fund (NEBF) is a forward-thinking charitable organization that conserves the diversity of plants, animals and micro-organisms that make up the Niagara Escarpment’s living biosphere.

The Niagara Escarpment is an essential part of the world you live in, the world that gives you air, water and food.

Please help us protect the Niagara Escarpment.

Among Canada’s 16 United Nations Biosphere Reserves, the Niagara Escarpment has the highest level of biodiversity. It is the largest stretch of forest and protected farm land in South-central Ontario. It connects three forest zones, contains our best farm land and preserves complex ecosystems.

It is also in the middle of the fastest growing region of Canada — under constant pressure from human activity — and a source of tremendous enjoyment for millions of people, for free!

Please help us to involve people to increase awareness about the Escarpment’s unique environment. We sponsor research about the conservation and preservation of this unique and special place — its plants and creatures, its ecosystems and landscapes. These are part of your life.

Please give us your support now!

A message from Robert Bateman

Dear Friend,

Of all the wondrous places that I have known on our living planet, the Niagara Escarpment holds a special place in my heart.

I raised my children within sight of the Escarpment’s towering cliffs and taught students who spent their summers exploring its rocky hardwood forests.

With my dear friend Raymond Lowes, I helped to create the 895-kilometre Bruce Trail, Canada’s longest and oldest footpath. This marvel snakes along the Escarpment’s bony spine all the way from Niagara Falls to Tobermory.
