Many people living near Fort Erie, Ontario Canada have the rare privilege of "forest bathing" or walking in the woods. Waverly Woods has been a favourite of the locals and outdoor enthusiasts for many years. Recently, after over 30 years, the owner of the land sold out to a developer and in 2018 the Town Council of Fort Erie. approved the development. The developer is looking to build on this land with houses and a 10 storey condominium.

Waverly is a very unique site along Lake Erie. Waverly has a wetlands area, forest, beach and a breathtaking rocky shoreline. It has historical significance as the site of the first NAACP meeting in Canada. There are many rare species of birds such as the Pileated Woodpecker,  Red-headed Woodpecker, Wood Thrush, Eastern Wood-Pewee, and the endangered Fowlers Toad.
