Made up of farms on fertile soils, limestone shorelines, and the (temporary) home of migrating birds – the South Shore of The County is a natural gem. Encompassing South Marysburgh and Athol wards, the hamlets and villages of Cherry Valley, Milford, and Black River each have their own unique charm, quirks and community. Black River is surrounded by multi-generational farms producing everything from honey to heirloom tomatoes and is known for its’ iconic cheese factory, Black River Cheese. Shallow shoreline waters reveal trilobite and horn coral fossils, and support thriving ecosystems at Little Bluff and Point Petre Wildlife Conservation Areas. The Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area at the eastern tip is home to the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory – an internationally regarded birding area. Outdoor adventure seekers will be keen to dive-in to shipwreck sites, spot over 30 species of warblers, and cycle lilac-lined roads to nowhere.
