The Heber Down Conservation Area (284 hectares) offers a variety of activities for the recreation-minded. Fishing, nature walks and picnicking are all popular activities that can be carried out just a short distance from home. More importantly, Heber Down Conservation Area preserves a portion of the significant Iroquois Beach physiographic unit. 
 

The natural valley of the Lynde Creek bisects a portion of this Conservation Area and provides many scenic vistas for those enjoying some of the 5 km of trails that run through this property.

Springs and seeps within the provincially significant Heber Down Wetland Complex provide important groundwater recharge to this branch of the Lynde Creek Watershed. This wetland complex also provides specialized habitat for many wildlife species that depend on large, treed wetland areas in order to carry out their breeding and feeding activities.
