Photo measures 10 x 8 in. Peche Island (French pronunciation anglicized to /?pi?t?/, therefore occasionally misspelled “Peach”), is an uninhabited, currently 86-acre (34.8 ha) (reduced by erosion from a 1965 measurement of 109 acres / 43.7 ha) Canadian-owned island in the Detroit River, at its opening into Lake Saint Clair. It is 1.2 miles (1.9 km) east of U. S.-owned Belle Isle, and 360 yards (330 m) from the Windsor shore.
The island was formed from a peninsula of the Canadian shore by the action of the Detroit River. There is a central marsh on the island. The present channel was eroded until the core of the island remained. There are man-made channels cut through the island to ensure fresh water supply and recreational opportunities. The island's flora and fauna have been heavily impacted by human activity, and the forest is the result of a rehabilitation programme.
