History of Marcy’s Woods

Marcy’s Woods is known as one of Canada’s most unique biodiversity’s. For more than 100 years the reserve was owned and managed by the Marcy family whose commitment to the protection of the sensitive land carried through the generations.

In 2003 the preservation and restoration of Marcy’s Woods was continued under the care of the DiCienzo family. Under private stewardship, the biodiversity has been meticulously looked after. Controlled access to the public has been maintained through relationships with local nature groups and clubs.
