willoughby marsh c. a. Willoughby Marsh Conservation Area is a swamp ecosystem and one of the largest forested wetlands in the eastern part of the Niagara Peninsula.

Located at the head of Tee, Usshers, Lyons and Black Creeks, this 550 acres Conservation Area protects an important source for these area waterways.

This natural area provides a wilderness setting with no formal trails or facilities. Bird watching, seasonal hunting and passive recreational activities can be enjoyed at this site.

The entrance is marked by green posts and located on the south side of Sauer Rd close to the east side of the wooded area. Another entry point on the north side of the road leads to trails that have been pretty well chewed up by ATV’s.
