Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites residents and families to attend the second annual Rattray Marsh Open House on October 18, 2023 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Green Glade Senior Public School, 1550 Green Glade, Mississauga.
Attendees will discover how we’re helping the forest recover from the devastating loss of ash trees to emerald ash borer (EAB), and improving wetland habitat, as well as learn about parks programming and recent infrastructure improvement projects.
“We’re happy to host the second annual Rattray Marsh Open House for residents and families,” said Terri LeRoux, Director, Parks, Lands and Community Engagement at CVC. “Rattray Marsh is a local environmental landmark, and we want to share what we’re doing to protect and improve the park.”
This family-friendly event will have staff and volunteers from the Rattray Marsh Protection Association, South Peel Naturalist Club and Wild Ontario who will share interactive displays. Learn about the rich culture and history of the area, birds and other wildlife that call Rattray Marsh home. Attendees will have the opportunity to touch real furs and wildlife skulls, get their photo taken with live birds of prey and more.
