"The Battle of the Bog"
The Creditview Wetland originated post de-glaciation ca. 12 000 b.p. Citizens under the leadership of Jocelyn Webber fought "The Battle of the Bog" to preserve the Creditview Wetland and subsequently the City of Mississauga purchased the Wetland back from developers in 1998. Urban development has encircled this natural wilderness over the past 17 years and there has been a significant decline in vegetation and in particular, wildlife species diversity and abundance.
Being a self-contained basin perched above the water table, the Wetland is fed mostly by precipitation. Water quality and quantity influences and impacts significantly on the Wetland.
