Welcome to Lone Pine Marsh

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.

May 30th, 10-2. OPEN DAY and CELEBRATION!! (Murial’s Marsh)

On May 30th, from 10-2, the Lone Pine Marsh hosts an Open Day at Murial’s Marsh, in celebration of the installation of the Murial Braham Memorial Pollinator Garden.

The late Murial Braham founded the Lone Pine Marsh and it was her original purchase of a beautiful wetland that began the LPMS vision.  Murial galvanized the community, working to form a local land trust dedicated to owning, stewarding and preserving the Marsh property. In this spirit of community, we invite all to join us for an Open Day in celebration of that vision – a vision which has now expanded to include over 350 protected acres of  wetland, forest and grasslands in our community, located within the Cold Creek and Marsh Creek watersheds. Time to celebrate!

This family friendly event includes: guided walks; a pond study; resources and information on native gardening, butterflies, bees and other pollinators; hands on planting; seed sale; Bluebird box building; BBQ and more!

Contact Sara at lonepinemarsh@eagle.ca for more details or information. Map to Murial’s Marsh below. Hope to see you there!
