Friends of Second Marsh

Do love being outdoors in nature? Join Friends of Second Marsh for our Winter Walk in Celebration of World Wetlands Day. This winter walk will provide students an opportunity to visit and learn about a local wetland, a hidden in the City of Oshawa, the Second Marsh. The Marsh and the area around it, McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve (MBWR), have a very interesting history. The Marsh itself was saved from being developed into a harbour/port. The Marsh is now protected. It is a Provincially Significant Wetland (PSW) and an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). The MBWR many years go use to be the Beaton Dairy Farm and it was restored by General Motors of Canada into a natural area with trails for public access. These significant ecological areas provide important wildlife habitat and many opportunities for outdoor exploration.
