About Severn Woodlands Nature Reserve

The Severn Woodlands Nature Reserve is a 600 acre property north of Orillia near Coldwater, Ontario.  The property contains a matrix of forest, wetland and rock barren habitats and is home to many species at risk including numerous rare birds such as eastern whip-poor-will, Canada warbler, barn swallow, bobolink and wood thrush.  The northeast portion of the property is a largely undisturbed, beautiful mosaic of swamp, marsh and water-lily-filled wetlands.

What you will be doing

At this event we will be controlling garlic mustard, an invasive plant species which has become well-established on the Severn Woodlands Nature Reserve, by pulling out the small plants before they grow and produce seeds next year.

Why you will love it

This property contains a matrix of native forest, wetland and rock barren habitats and is home to many species at risk. By preventing the spread of garlic mustard you will be helping protect the native habitats of this property and helping its native species to flourish!
