When you hear Long Point, Norfolk County, Ontario, someone may be making reference to either the 40 kilometer sand spit that juts out into Lake Erie, or the community of the same name, which is on this peninsula. Either way, this is one of the most unique places you'll ever find in the world. Long Point is also a very important stopover location for migratory waterfowl, butterflies and other wildlife. Conservation efforts started way back in the 1800s and much of the area is still owned by The Long Point Company and the public is forbidden to enter. In 1986, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated the Long Point National Wildlife Area as a World Biosphere Reserve. This photo is the community of Long Point, the first section of developed land just before the Ontario provincial park and the remaining 30 odd kilometers to the famous lighthouse at the very tip of Long Point.
