Hit the trail…. if you haven’t yet; take a stroll on the Cobden Marsh Interpretive (Civitan) Trail. This trail lets you wander through nearly 60 acres of provincially significant wetlands. It is home to many amphibians, reptiles, and birds - so bring your field glasses if you enjoy bird watching!
This trail was a project originally taken on by the Cobden Civitan Club (with help from other partners) and the Whitewater Region Township. It is located just east of Cobden on the corner of Highway 17 and the Foresters Fall Road. You can walk from the Foresters Falls Road, down past the waterfront, and up to the Cobden Park.
On October 16th, 2022, a group of hardy volunteers came out to help the Muskrat Watershed Council do some clean up. THANK YOU! You crazy wonderful people! Volunteers arrived to find the Township had done some grass cutting, so they set to work cutting brush back from the trail before picking up garbage in the parking lot.
Some of the volunteers had not been on the trail before and one noted: “I am impressed with how good the trail is.”
Muskrat Watershed Council would like to work with the Township and restore the trail to its former glory, fulfilling the original vision that the Cobden Civitan Club worked so hard to achieve. This area is vital to the wildlife in the area and a great space for adults and kids alike to learn about nature/water, and our place in it.
Again, to our volunteers who came out: Thank You. You clean up great!
