Located on the cusp of the Carolinian Life Zone; one of North America’s hot spots of natural diversity, Parkhill reflects the transition between southern and northern habitats. Lush deciduous forests typical of the south are found alongside pockets of bogs and ferns, more typical of the north. Woods, wetlands, meadows, and shrublands support the great variety of wildlife in Parkhill. The Wood-poppy; an endangered wildflower, is found only in this area. The 800-hectare conservation area is the result of efforts to control serious flooding and soil erosion problems downstream. The Parkhill Dam and Reservoir were constructed in 1969 to create a storage area to regulate the water flow of Parkhill Creek.
