      The Niagara Escarpment stretches in a wide arc from eastern Wisconsin through Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, across Ontario, Canada, and on through the Niagara Falls in New York. The rock forming the escarpment was originally deposited as lime mud on an ancient sea floor about million years ago. What remains is the result of uplift. In Niagara, heat is stored in Lakes Erie and Ontario and the interaction between the Escarpment and the open waters acts to moderate the temperature on the fruit lands, helping prevent the buds from opening too early in the Spring and pulling the air along to help prevent a pooling of cold air on still nights.

      The height of the Niagara Escarpment at Lewiston, New York is 76 meters ( feet) above sea level. Only five kilometers west of Lewiston, New York, the escarpment is so steep that it raises 73 meters ( feet) above sea level in kilometers (1/4 mile).   They contain virtually all of Ontario’s grape and tender fruit lands, asource of healthy nutrition. Through the middle of this Greenbelt, even in urbanized areas such as the cities of St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Hamilton, there is a still forested Niagara Escarpment.

      The Niagara Escarpment has a great influence on the winds and temperature of Lake Ontario serving as a shelter belt and creating distinctive climate characteristics (Shaw ). The main urban area is south of the Parkway Belt and Hwy. The land north of this, and north Aldershot is used primarily for agriculture, rural residential and conservation purposes. The Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario and the sloping plain between the escarpment and the lake make up the land area of Burlington.
