The heart of eastern North America’s last, great forest corridor is threatened by development, but the people of Ontario’s Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve are determined to keep it intact.

Biosphere Reserves are a way to think about nature that includes people as part of the environment. Industry, landowners, residents, and First Nations are all stakeholders in a Biosphere Reserve. Here, the environment is only healthy if human communities and the ecosystems that sustain them are both thriving.

The work of Jordanna Bergman, Steven Cooke, Greg Bulte, and many others is featured in a recent TVO documentary on the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve.
