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.
Thank you to all who joined us at the Keeler Centre, on February 26th, for the Native and Pollinator Gardens event. A special thank you to our presenter, Marg Fleming, who captivated us with an informative and lively presentation. Marg also had a generous surprise in store for all in attendance – a copy of her “Collection of Garden Diaries”, an engaging, fresh and informative book on gardening… just the thing to inspire us while we wait out the last of the winter! Thank you Marg!
Sparked by Marg’s talk, and with visions of flora in our heads – we now turn our planning to the installation of the Murial Braham Memorial Pollinator Garden, at our Lone Pine Marsh (Braham Tract) location. More details to follow about this May 30th event – including how you can get involved! Check back here soon.
Our Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant Projects are well underway!
On April 26th, the Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary brought citizen volunteers together with field history experts, naturalists, ornithologists, horticulturalists, entomologists, and ecologists to conduct a BioBlitz at the Wilkinson Tract. We had a beautiful day, and hundreds of species were identified. The Bioblitz launches our baseline study for the Wilkinson Property. The baseline study will be completed in 2015, and will provide a comprehensive understanding of the diversity and natural heritage of property. Following this, a stewardship plan will be created to ensure the property is conserved for generations to come. Hurray volunteers!
