Walpole Island, Ontario

Walpole Island is nestled between Ontario and Michigan on the north shores of Lake St. Clair at the mouth of the St. Clair River. Occuppied by aborigninal people for thousands of years it is known as Bkejwanong, the-place-where-the waters-divide.

Walpole Island has one of the most diverse ecosystems including one of the richest wetlands in the Great Lakes Basin. These wetlands are set in the centre of two international migrating waterfowl flyways, which provides the area with recreational hunting and fishing, as well as excellent bird watching. The area is so abundant with natural resources that many First Nations citizens still support their familes through hunting, fishing, trapping and guiding activities, with recreational tourism as their number one industry.
