Dog on the Beach
There are 2 main municipal by-laws that regulate dogs as well as beach and marina use:
- Regulating Dogs
- Usage of Beach, Marina and Water Areas
Gulls and Geese Signage
Due to the presence of gulls and geese at the Bayfield Main Beach, the adverse impacts are highlighted on beach signage
Beaches and Dune Ecosystems & Bluff Conservation
Beaches and Dune Ecosystems
- Lake Huron shores host a dune ecosystem that features rare plant species, protects our beach from storm waves and helps protect our lake's water quality. Dune ecosystems are among the rarest coastal features on the Great Lakes, representing about 1.5% of its coastline. Our dunes are sensitive to human disturbances and if damaged or destroyed will lead to poor beach quality, loss of shore protection value, loss of habitat and contribute to water quality degradation.
- Bluff stability on Lake Huron is largely due to vegetation that is established. Native vegetation is encouraged.
