Flora and Fauna

Wasaga Beach Provincial Park is home to many different species from the endangered Piping Plover, to tiny Tiger Beetles, to tall White Pines. We encourage our visitors to explore our park and look for the many creatures that call it home, however there are some important things to remember while exploring.

Here are some friendly reminders for how to explore in a provincial park.

  • Do not pick flowers or other items! It is illegal to remove any animal, plant, or other item from a provincial park.
  • Stay on park trails – walking off trail can damage habitats and dunes that have taken thousands of years to form.
  • Do not approach or handle wildlife, instead admire from afar! Photos are a great way to remember an exciting sighting in a park! Remember to bring your binoculars!
  • Become a citizen scientist! Help us learn more about the species that live in our park.  Join iNaturalist and submit species sightings to the Wasaga Beach Provincial Park Project.  https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/wasaga-beach-provincial-park
