Primary Land Types: Hastings and Prince Edward stretch from Algonquin Park to the shores of Lake Ontario. This extensive area includes typical Canadian Shield forests and the rich biodiversity of "The Land Between" which separates the shield from the limestone plains to the south. Extensive wetlands exist throughout the area. Of special interest within our area are alvars, prairie remnants, and the marshes on the shores of Prince Edward County.
