October 18, 2022 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites residents and families to attend the Rattray Marsh Open House on November 3, 2022 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Green Glade Sr. Public School, 1550 Green Glade, Mississauga. You can meet CVC staff to ask questions and learn how we’re working to improve the visitor experience and the environmental health at Rattray Marsh Conservation Area.
Guests will discover how we’re helping the forest recover from the devastating loss of ash trees to emerald ash borer and improving wetland habitat as well as learn about parks programming and recent infrastructure improvement projects.
“Rattray Marsh is an important greenspace for both visitors and wildlife, but as a unique urban wetland, it faces many challenges,” said Kate Hayes, Ecosystem Restoration and Stewardship Senior Manager at CVC. “We want to share with residents the restoration work we’re doing to protect and improve this conservation area.”
This family-friendly event will have interactive displays to 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.
