Vinemount Swamp Boardwalk is the largest natural forested area within the region of Hamilton, Ontario. This swamp forest, just south of the Niagara Escarpment, provides an important stopover ground for many migratory bird species. Several significant bird species call the area home, including the Sedge Wren and the Northern Harrier. Vinemount Swamp is also home to the Edward’s Hairstreak Butterfly — the only site in the region that hosts this creature. Along with providing home to abundant biodiversity, the swamp helps to regulate water flow among the surrounding creeks.

Looking out from under the bridge that crosses the mouth of the Humber, you can see where the river meets the lake. Everything above is possible because of everything below.
