Photo: Landscape Physical Geography Flowerpot Island Lake Huron Ontario

A sea stack juts out into the water along the edge of Flowerpot Island, located in the Fathom Five National Marine Park in Lake Huron, Ontario. This park is made up of 20 islands each with their own unique physical landscape and geography.

They look like 'flowerpots', hence why the island is named as such. The island also contains many treasures such as caves, forests, and high cliffs and is popular place for visitors interested in physical geography and landscape.

This island is so named because originally there were three flowerpots, or sea stacks, located there (however one fell down in 1903). As the water gradually wore away the limestone rock over time, the resulting shape resembled a flowerpot - and so the name stuck.

The Fathom Five National Marine Park where this island is located is the first marine park in Canada, and is about 130 square kilometres in size, with an ecosystem reaching about 200 metres below the surface of the water. Being a National Marine Park, the area is protected from fishing and development, making this an area of beauty to enjoy for years to come.
