Cedar Creek Conservation Area
By Essex Region Conservation Authority

The Cedar Creek basin is probably the most significant, most extensive, and most beautiful natural area in the Essex Region. Contributing to the beauty of this area are the Carolinian woodlands, rolling landscapes, creeks, tributaries and abundant wildlife.

Recreation Activities Available

Bird Watching
Cedar Creek is a pristine natural area offering excellent bird watching opportunities.

Canoeing & Kayaking
Canoeing or kayaking can be a great way to explore this Conservation Area. Launch from the dock and head upstream for a magical journey meandering through the trees and Carolinian foliage, or head downstream to enjoy the widening expanse of water as you approach Cedar Beach Conservation Area.

Choose from the open grassy areas of the cool shade under the trees.

A beautiful tranquil spot to cast out the line and see what bites.

Be inspired by the sight of eagles soaring, herons and egrets wading, and turtles sun worshiping on logs, along with American Lotus, Swamp Rose Mallow and other superb flora and fauna.
