The Luther Marsh Wildlife Management Area is a biological treasure in the headwaters area of the Grand River watershed. The 5,900-hectare property centres on the 1,400-hectare Luther Lake, created by Luther Dam, built in 1954. Surrounding it are wetlands, fields and forests providing habitat to a wide variety of birds, animals, plants and trees. It is one of the best bird-watching spots in Ontario. It is also a popular spot with hikers and hunters.

Luther Marsh is jointly owned and managed by the GRCA and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Learn about our goals for the area by reading the Luther Marsh Management Plan.
