The Meisel Woods Conservation Area is the Rideau Valley's newest developed conservation area. Officially opened October 4, 2003. The property was generously donated to the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation by John Meisel in 2000. Mr. Meisel's interest is that the property remain undeveloped. That wish will be respected. The goal of the new Meisel Woods Conservation Area is environmental protection.
