Natural Heritage Collection is County’s Best Kept Secret! Prince Edward County, ON – We have one of the best privately held natural heritage collections in all of Ontario. This comes straight from staff at the Royal Ontario Museum! We are talking about the lifelong work of the late Jake de Vries. This collection, of nearly 500 specimens, has been graciously offered to the Ameliasburgh Heritage Village, as its new home for all to see, by Johanna de Vries and her children, Jane and John. A group of citizens and organizations are now banding together to rehabilitate the “Green Barn” on the museum grounds to properly accommodate this very special collection.
