The Town of LaSalle is fortunate to still have a small but significant amount of land area consisting of Carolinian forests, provincially significant wetlands, and tall grass prairie communities. Approximately 7% of all land is wooded and/or contains plant species and wildlife habitat which, from a biological perspective, is considered to be a “natural heritage area”. Lasalle area has its own small but growing bicycle trail network, named the "LaSalle Trail", which links up to neighbouring Windsor, Ontario's own "Windsor Trail" network, allowing people to ride from Sandwich Secondary School all the way to Windsor's Riverfront Trail.
