Our Nature Code of Ethics

Welcome to Lambton Shores and its communities of Arkona, Forest, Grand Bend, Ipperwash, Northville. Port Franks and Thedford.  A 'Destination for Nature Lovers' on the beautiful south-eastern shores of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.  A network of connected, accessible, safe & user-friendly Nature Trails for walking, hiking, cycling & outdoor enthusiasts!

LSNT Blazers works to provide safe and accessible hiking trails in Lambton Shores & Vicinity. We help landowners be good stewards and protect some of the most environmentally sensitive areas in Southwestern Ontario while offering the public an ability to connect with nature.

A lot of our forests are under constant threat from outside influences. Thankfully, organizations like the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority help to protect these lands from further development. However, there is a constant threat from fragmentation and misuse of the land.

Invitiation To Join Us

LSNT hosted a hike with the North Lambton Secondary School Travel & Tourism class.  After spending time in the classroom informing about who we are and what we do, we escorted the class through the Ipperwash Dunes & Swales. 9 enthusiastic young men and women attended and learned about woodpecker holes, phragmites, trail head signs, blazes, etc.  We hiked a total of 6.5 km on a beautiful day!
