Frontenac Arch Biosphere
Initially nominated by the community in 2000, the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve was designated as Canada’s 12th biosphere reserve by the UNESCO “Man and the Biosphere” programme in November 2002. It was re-designated in 2007, with a larger land area including Frontenac Provincial Park. The biosphere reserves overlaps with the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe (Algonquin) and Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) lands and covers a region from Brockville and Gananoque, extending north of Kingston including Harrowsmith, Verona and Westport.
