Map of the Day: For the Love of the Lake, Historic Lakeshore Communities

…from the ESRI Map Book, Volume 24


“This map is part of a series of community maps of the town of Georgina produced by residents. Its purpose is to showcase what residents think is important about their neighborhoods and to help protect and enhance what is special. The map points out a nature reserve and a local stream, both important habitats for conservation.

“The Deer Park Road area is an important mature mixed forest providing habitat for a wide range of animals, birds, and amphibians. Private landowners in the area worked together with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority to create the Arnold C. Matthews Nature Reserve in order to preserve and steward the land in perpetuity.

“Boyer’s Stream connects protected core lands and Lake Simcoe, providing habitat for waterfowl, amphibians, and marsh birds and a potential upstream fish spawning route.
