The Niagara Escarpment, a United Nations Biosphere Reserve can be spotted at the ends of the grape rows in our Wine Visitor and Education Centre, and all along the campus. The Escarpment is a unique area, with many geologic, biological and environmentally specific aspects. In particular, on the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus, Woodend Conservation Area is the park associated with the portion of the Escarpment our campus faces. Students, employees and visitors are more than welcome to explore the campus grounds, and we are fortunate that between the campus and the Escarpment, there are three major interconnecting trails.
These trails include:
For those who are interested in visiting these trails, just step out onto the College grounds and head south from the East Wing parking lot towards the lagoons.
