Ontario's Carden Plain is a unique and largely unknown area of the Central Ontario Landscape. Located between Lake Simcoe and Balsam Lake this limestone plain features North America's most accessible alvars.
The abundance and variety of grassland bird species is the main attraction. Although, visitors will also find an amazing variety of butterflies dragonflies, and rare or unusual alvar plant species. In the spring and early summer Carden is carpeted with wildflowers.
