Bruce Alvar Nature Reserve

Rare plant habitats with exquisite wildflowers such as Lakeside Daisies and Dwarf Lake Irises can be found at Bruce Alvar Nature Reserve, just off Highway 6 a half-kilometre north of Dyer’s Bay Rd. The best season for viewing flowers is May to mid-June. Alvars are bedrock pavement areas that have little soil and undergo extreme climatic fluctuations. As a result only the hardiest plants can thrive there, some of which are found nowhere else in Canada. Visitors should stay on trails to avoid damaging the fragile growth underfoot.
