The Wawanosh Wetlands Conservation Area is part of a series of continentally important wetlands located in southwestern Ontario. It continues to provide critical habitat for North American waterfowl species, as well as other migrating species. The region is host to over 700 species of plants, 220 species of birds and a wide array of mammals, fish, reptiles and amphibians. Wawanosh is located within the Mississippi & Atlantic Flyways and is a major migratory route for waterfowl. Migratory waterfowl depend heavily on wetlands like this one to serve as a ”refueling station” on their long journey south, and again in spring when they return home. Wawanosh is located just north of Highway 402 off Blackwell Sideroad in the City of Sarnia.
