The Altberg Wildlife Sanctuary Nature Reserve encompasses 470 hectares (1163 acres) of central Ontario woodland and wetland and is the largest in the Ontario nature reserve system. It has a number of public trails to explore the contact zone between the granitic rocks of the Canadian Shield and the limestone of the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence forest. In an area of Ontario where interior forest is uncommon, this Reserve provides diverse habitat for numerous wildlife species that depend on large tracts of unbroken natural cover. Rudolph Altberg, a local philanthropist and a great lover of the natural world, donated the northern part of the Reserve to future generations. The Kawartha Field Naturalists manage this property for its ecological values.
