Best seen by snowshoe in the winter months, this wetland spans 6,500 acres, 700 of which are owned and managed by the NVCA. There is a diverse array of wildlife habitat including a unique esker (long winding ridge of sand and gravel) surrounded by pockets of White Pine, Black Spruce and mixed hardwoods. It is an area of natural scientific interest (ANSI).
Defying the traditional fate of wetlands in Southern Ontario, the Osprey Wetlands has endured more than a century of settlement and remains relatively undisturbed. These wetlands are one of the highest elevations in Southern Ontario-they are essentially a 'raised bog' that rest in a depression of bedrock.
