Charles Grant and his sisters, Sandra and Kerry, donated this property in 1996 at the same time as Grant Wetland. This 9 hectare wetland, just north of the Orillia City boundary, is a good example of a wooded swamp with a mix of coniferous and deciduous species.

Unique features of this property

  • low lying wooded swamp on deep organic soils with spring flooding
  • treed by a mix of coniferous and deciduous species, including white cedar, balsam fir, tamarack, white pine and white birch
  • home to a variety of songbirds including white-throated sparrow, red-eyed vireo and ruffed grouse
  • several species of wildflowers and ferns typical of cool swamps
