For those of you that like beaches and the Great Lakes...

Windsor-Essex County is surrounded on three sides by water. It amounts to 100 miles of shoreline.

(just in case you like collecting sand from all of the great lakes... you know who you are!!!)

Point Pelee National Park is the most southern land mass in Canada , sharing the same latitude as Rome and Barcelona .  
This provides the area with a Carolinian climate which makes for some very interesting foliage and animal species

Here is some more Point Pelee Trivia

Point Pelee National Park

Point Pelee National Park is located, not surprisingly, at the tip of Point Pelee, in Ontario; it’s a long peninsula that juts quite abruptly into Lake Erie, near Leamington, Ontario, at the southernmost tip of Canada‘s mainland.

The region is steeped in hundreds of years of history. From the creation of the automobile in early 1900s, the War of 1812, World Wars … and the freedom revolution that eventually abolished slavery in Canada.  As a matter of fact, if in the area, you can visit the Underground Railway.

The park’s climate is warmer than most of the rest of Canada, and so it is home to many species typical of southern areas.  It has a lush, almost jungle-like forest.

The park boasts an abundance of reptiles and amphibians and several species that are rare in the rest of Canada. Examples are the fox snake, the spotted turtle and Canada’s only lizard, the five-lined skink.

The park is also renowned as Canada’s finest bird watching spot. Over 360 species have been sighted, of which hundreds stay to breed there. A visitor would also see many Monarch butterflies that abounds while on their southward migrations.

French explorers named it Pointe Pelee, meaning “bald point,” because of its lack of vegetation.

In 1918, duck hunters and naturalists lobbied and are the reason it’s become a National Park. Still, the park is precariously vulnerable; it is small, and it’s in a region that is 97% surrounding land that has been severely manipulated for housing and agriculture. It is commonly believed that over ten species of amphibians and reptiles, including flying squirrels, have disappeared from the area in the 20th Century.

And for all you Bird Lovers...

Point Pelee National Park of Canada
Monthly Summaries of Autumn Migrants
September

Many species of southbound migrant land birds attain peak numbers during this month. Most species that are common in August remain numerous through September.

Arrivals expected in early September include:

Sharp-shinned Hawk
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Gray-cheeked Thrush
Palm Warbler

Arrivals expected by mid-September include:

Turkey Vulture
Hermit Thrush
Cooper's Hawk
Solitary Vireo
Parasitic Jaeger (scarce)
Dark-eyed Junco
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
White-throated Sparrow
Winter Wren
Lincoln's Sparrow

Arrivals expected by late September include:

Peregrine Falcon (uncommon)
American Pipit
Dunlin
Orange-crowned Warbler
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Rusty Blackbird

Buff-breasted sandpipers are often numerous in the Onion Fields by early September. With the passage of any cold front between approximately September 12 to 18, a massive movement of broad-winged hawks can be expected.. This is also the time when large numbers of blue jays first arrive. By mid-September, common terns are abundant in off-shore waters. However, the number of terns has declined severely in recent years.

We should be at the Point during the peak of Monarch Butterfly Migration.



Point Pelee is known for attracting over 380 species of birds including many songbirds. The real show is when monarchs gather here between August and October, because it’s the shortest crossing point over Lake Erie during their 3000 km journey to their winter home in the mountains of central Mexico. Arrive on the right day and you may see them by the thousands. There’s even a butterfly hotline you can call to see if it’s a good time for viewing them : (519) 322-2371, or watch updates on Twitter: @pointpeleenp

On a major migration route - 10,000 monarch butterflies can land on Point Pelee in a single day!

French explorers named it Pointe Pelee, meaning “bald point,” because of its lack of vegetation. The National Park is precariously vulnerable; it is small, and it’s in a region that is 97% surrounding land that has been severely manipulated for housing and agriculture.

It's a huge sand bar, sand bars move. Pointe Pelee is a recent geological feature, the Great Lakes once extended much further inland. It's impossible to know for sure with dredging for shipping lanes what each minor manipulation of our shores do
 

The Great Lakes contain 95% of the freshwater of North America -- if these waters were evenly distributed over the entire continent's land area they would reach a depth of 1.5 meters or 5 feet
