Gillies_marsh_RR_edge_-_Copy.jpgGillies Nature Tract was generously donated to the Thames Talbot Land Trust in 2017 by George Gillies, who wanted to protect this beautiful habitat in perpetuity.

The Gillies Nature Tract is a 34.2 hectare (84.5 acre) forest property that is a mixture of upland forest (85%) and Provincially Significant Wetland (15%). The extensive 56 acre interior forest provides home to a number of area sensitive forest breeding birds including several Species at Risk. The wetlands are home to many amphibians and reptiles.
