Natural Resources Gallery

How do you describe this land called Simcoe County?  Rolling sand dunes, rugged escarpment, rich marsh soil, dense forests, sandy beaches, clear waters? All of the above? 

Our varied landscape has provided a wealth of natural resources for the people who have lived here. Important for work, recreation, and even survival, these resources have influenced the development of the County.
