The Kennedy Nature Reserve is a group of 3 Nature Reserves making up 45.4 ha (112 acres) of land which was donated by Robert and Freda Kennedy to the Lone Pine Land Trust. It consists of an alder swamp with an isolated forest island. This protected area of land is mostly made up of a Provincially Significant Wetland (PSW), forests and streams and is a critical habitat for many plants and animals. This Nature Reserve and the adjacent wetlands make up the headwaters of Cold Creek, a regionally important cold-water stream. It is located north of Colborne near County Rd. 25 and Dingman Rd. The Kennedy Nature Reserve is home to many species of plants and animals, including some that are rare or uncommon. As a result of the lack of trails and its designation as a PSW, the access and recreational use is limited. ;
