Beamer Memorial Conservation Area

Park

Beamer Memorial Conservation Area offers up some of the most breathtaking views of Lake Ontario and the surrounding Niagara Escarpment. Walk or cycle the Lookout or Bruce Trails for spectacular views, stopping at the many viewing platforms along the escarpment edge. Wind your way through the old growth forests, dominated primarily by Sugar Maples and Red Oak trees. Beamer Memorial is part of the internationally designated Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve and an official “Important Bird Area”. In fact, the area is renowned as being one of the best spots in the Niagara Peninsula for watching the annual hawk migration in the spring. Stop by to see unmatched views of birds of prey as they circle the sky. Keep your eyes peeled for Bald Eagles, Red-Tailed hawks, Vultures, and Sharp-Shinned Hawks. The area is also steeped in history; remnants of the homestead of pioneers John and Anna Beamer and an old 1900s quarry can be seen within the trees.
