ABOUT RIVER CANARD
Canada has many diverse regions and river systems. River Canard is Canada’s truly most southern river system with its unique bio diversity. The Detroit River is actually NOT a river but a straight.
The local First Nations people that called themselves “Wendats” (mispronounced Wyandotte) called River Canard “TA-RON-TE”, which literally means, “trees rising or standing in the water”.
Farther upstream after heavy rains, the river will flood, spilling into the fields and wooded valleys, thus flooding entire forests, hence the term is most accurate- trees rising from the water.
River Canard has a unique biodiversity of vegetation and wildlife like nowhere else in Canada.
