The Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve means something different to everyone. Maybe it’s a place to walk your dog. Perhaps it’s bird watching in the Carolinian Forest, or watching raptors sail the winds along the cliff face. Is it the ancient astern White Cedars, the oldest living thing in Eastern North America
or perhaps the species of orchids which grow nowhere else in the world? More? Well it could be the nearly 1000 kilometers of Bruce Trail, scenery and waterfalls. Could it be the fossils from a time when the first life was forming on the planet?
Whether it’s the Escarpment’s recreation, culture, scenery, or environmental significance you love, the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve is a natural treasure which will always need advocates for its protection.
The Giant’s Rib Environmental Education Network is a group of volunteers dedicated to educating the public about this natural wonder. We operate a Discovery Centre in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area and run public programs to raise awareness of this significant natural feature.
Right now we need your help. We are always looking for volunteers to help us out at the Centre on weekends (3 or 6 hour shifts) and volunteers to act as program coordinators and Board Members.
Currently we have the following positions open:
