An event will be held this week for the community to learn about a popular conservation area in Mississauga.

The open house event will enable residents to meet Credit Valley Conservation staff and learn about Rattray Marsh Conservation Area, located at 1180 Lakeshore Rd. W, which many people consider an “ecological gem”.

Attendees will be able to ask questions and learn how the forest is recovering from the loss of ash trees and improving wetland habitat.

Additionally, they will be able to learn about upcoming park programming and recent infrastructure projects to improve the experience as well as the environmental health of the conservation area.

At the event, there will be opportunities to learn about the wildlife that calls Rattray Marsh home, touch real furs and skulls, meet real birds of prey from Wild Ontario and visit displays covering topics such as environmental restoration and management, marsh ecology, property management and enforcement and the history of the marsh and its trail system.

Additionally, they will be able to meet members of the Rattray Marsh Protection Association (RMPA) and CVC’s CAO Quentin Hanchard, members of CVC’s Senior Leadership team and learn about the CVC Foundation.

The free open-house event will take place on Nov. 3 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Green Glade Sr. Public School, located at 1550 Green Glade in Mississauga.
