Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary Land Trust
LONE PINE MARSH SANCTUARY is a land trust organization, a member of the Ontario Land Trust Alliance. The Cold Creek Watershed is our focus. Cold Creek is one of the finest creeks remaining in eastern North America and our goal is to preserve as much as possible of the natural heritage of Cold Creek and its surrounding lands and forests. At present, we hold four tracts, all concentrated around the headwaters of Cold Creek and Marsh Creek.
The Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary is a local success story, with a volunteer board of directors, members, land donors, and community volunteers and supporters, who have come together to do something of enduring value toward the preservation of land, water and diverse life in our area.
What’s Upcoming? The BioBlitz !!
Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary is joining with citizen volunteers to conduct a BioBlitz at the Wilkinson Tract. A Bioblitz is a fun event for people of all ages where experienced naturalists work together with volunteers to inventory the plants and animals on a property. There are two start times for the event: 6:30AM for the early risers and 9AM for those who prefer a slightly later start to their day! Participants will be organized into small teams with an experienced leader. This event celebrates the launch of our Ontario Trillium Foundation grant initiatives! The Lone Pine Marsh land trust gratefully acknowledges the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support and for the opportunity to strengthen natural heritage conservation and education in our community.
The Wilkinson Tract is located on Pogue Rd. approximately 2km north of County Rd. 21/Dundonald Rd. Cramahe Township. See map below.
Participants are encouraged to wear light weight long pants and long sleeved shirts as well as sturdy footwear (rubber boots would be an asset). Bring hats, bug repellent, and sunscreen as well as a good supply of drinking water.
The BioBlitz will take place rain or shine. The blitz will end at 11AM and be followed immediately by a light BBQ lunch for all participants. Come out and learn more about the plants and animals of the Cold Creek watershed. Hope to see you there!
