The Schreiber Point Nature Reserve
TBFN has protected another area of scenic beauty and ecological significance in the Great Lakes Heritage Coast Signature Site. On December 11, 2009, we acquired Schreiber Point Nature Reserve on the south-west shore of Schreiber Peninsula. The rocky wave-swept shoreline fronts onto Lake Superior and features many Arctic Alpine disjunct plants. Our Club has acquired both the Surface and the Mining Rights for this property. With this addition, TBFN now protects 2014 acres in 11 separate reserves.
The Schreiber Point Nature Reserve is approximately 46 acres (18.6 hectares) in area. It is visible in the distance from Schreiber Beach, but getting there is no easy matter. On a calm day you can visit by boat, but Lake Superior of course can be unpredictable and wavy. If you are adventurous, it is possible to reach the property via the famous Casque Isles shoreline hiking trail. The trail starts at the east end of Schreiber Beach and passes near the new TBFN Nature Reserve property. The hike in and out requires about 6 hours and involves not only hiking along the marked trail, but also some bush whacking through rough unmarked terrain.
