Ownership of Marcy’s Woods

For over 100 years the Marcy family of Buffalo, New York owned the property on the northeast shore of Lake Erie that contains one of Canada’s most unique biodiversities, Marcy’s Woods. On Thursday July 24, 2003 the DiCienzo family purchased Marcy’s Woods in an effort to uphold, implement, and serve as a model of how of private ownership can lead to successful preservation of a nature reserve.
