Located within the headwaters of the mighty Saugeen River, properties within the Osprey Wetland were purchased to ensure the future health and well-being of the initial stages of this massive river system. See property map here.
Noted as being the highest location in southern Ontario, this area is also the headwaters for the Grand, Beaver, the Mad and a tributary of the Nottawasauga River systems. See property map here.
The importance of protecting this important Class 1 wetland was given top priority by both Saugeen Conservation and the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority, both of which own lands within this significant wetland.
