About rare

The rare Charitable Research Reserve is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2001, located in one of Canada’s fastest growing regions. The objective of rare is to preserve, in perpetuity, an environmentally invaluable landscape of over 900 acres; we do this by focusing on conservation, ecological restoration, research, and education while also providing wonderful opportunities for passive leisure. The Reserve contains natural and cultural habitats; including old-growth forest, coldwater streams, deciduous swamps, floodplain and riparian zones, alvar and limestone cliffs. It is not only a beautiful landscape, home to the confluence of the Speed and the Grand Rivers (a Canadian Heritage River), it is also in the southern Ontario zone with the greatest biodiversity where the forests of the Northern Hardwoods and Carolinian zones meet.
