The Little Tract was donated to the County by John Robert Little, in 1946, to be reforested and dedicated to the memory of the first settlers and pioneers of the area. It is one of the most significant and diverse natural areas in the County, with parts being Provincially Significant wetlands and the entire site within the Oil Well Bog/Little Tract Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA). A number of the plants and animals found within the tract are considered to be rare. In addition to being an extensive trail system, the little Tract is also home to the County of Wellington’s Green Legacy tree nursery.
