Welcome to Wheatley Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. Wheatley Provincial Park, on the shores of Lake Erie, is close to Canada’s southernmost tip. An unusual component of the woods is the shagbark hickory, a southern tree species with shaggy bark and grows straight and slender with few, low branches. This lush Carolinian forest is usually found much further south. The dense forest provides a canopy for an abundance of wildflowers native to this region. Trilliums, cardinal flower, royal fern, grape fern, cinnamon fern, and shining club moss can be found growing prolifically on the forest floor. Wheatley Provincial Park is located on a major birding migration route with spring and fall providing excellent viewing opportiunities. Two Hiking trails and 1.6 km of sandy beach can also be found in the park.
