Deerberry

Vaccinium stamineum

Deerberry is one of Canada’s most rare plants. Though common in the United States, deerberry occurs in Canada in two regions of Ontario. Three of the sites where deerberry occurs are in protected areas, however it is crucial that Parks Canada manages visitor use at an ecologically sustainable level to promote deerberry’s survival and recovery.
