Point Pelée National Park
Point Pelée National Park is a national park in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada where it extends into Lake Erie. The word pelée is French for ‘bald’. Point Pelée consists of a peninsula of land, mainly of marsh and woodland habitats, that tapers to a sharp point as it extends into Lake Erie. Middle Island, also part of Point Pelée National Park, was acquired in 2000 and is just north of the Canada–United States border in Lake Erie. Point Pelée is the southernmost point of mainland Canada, and is located on a foundation of glacial sand, silt and gravel that bites into Lake Erie. This spit of land is slightly more than seven kilometres long by 4.5 kilometers wide at its northern base. Established in 1918, Point Pelée was the first national park in Canada to be established for conservation. It was designated as a Ramsar site on 27 May 1987.
