Description: The Rattray Marsh is home to many types of deciduous trees: sugar maple, basswood, red oak, white oak, beech, white ash, black cherry, ironwood, red maple and blue beech, as well as many varieties of unusual shrubs. Dead trees are allowed to fall and deteriorate naturally. Rattray Marsh is a protected natural conservation area, accessible from Meadow Wood Road (north of Orr Road) or through Jack Darling Memorial Park. In Wilmot's survey the marsh was originally called Cranberry Marsh. It was bought by Major James Rattray in 1945. After his death in 1959 various groups fought to save the marsh as a conservation area.
