Niagara Escarpment


Peninsula’s shady cliffs harbor microhabitats alive with rare crustaceans, snails, and delicate ferns and flowers. The limestone cliffs form a rock ridge called the Niagara Escarpment. The bluffs formed about 430 million years ago as mud on the bottom of a saltwater sea. Walk carefully! This habitat includes globally rare snail species.
