By Ontario Parks

A banding station here has recorded visits from migrating sandpipers and kingfishers, ducks and herons to the marshes and meadows by Spring Creek. Opossum live in the oak and hickory woods. This shore near Port Dover once sheltered fishing boats and shallow Lake Erie still yields lots of perch, bass and catfish.
