John P. Webster Nature Preserve
Nipissing-Gurd Township, 326 acres 
Natural Environment Area


In 1998, the Nature Conservancy of Canada transferred ownership of the John P. Webster Nature Preserve to the North Bay - Mattawa Conservation Authority. The Nature Preserve has been established to preserve the land for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations. The primary activity of the preserve is outdoor education.

A highlight of the J.P Webster Nature Preserve is a number of bright green boulders scattered throughout the property. The green colour is derived from the lichens that live on the rock's surface. The Conservation Area is currently unmarked with no formal trails. Please contact the NBMCA at (705) 474-5420 for more information. 

General Directions: Travel south of North Bay on Highway 11, then turn left on Alsace Road. Follow Alsace Road for ten kilometers. A parking lot is not provided.
