The Wildwood Silts, of Erie Interstadial age (16000 BP), occur between Catfish Creek Till (Nissouri Stadial) and Tavistock Till (Port Bruce Stadial) near St. Mary's, Ontario. Pollen analysis of a 16-m core through the silts yields a pollen assemblage dominated by pine and spruce pollen, resembling those reported from Port Talbot II and Plum Point Interstadial sediments in Ontario. A forest–tundra environment is inferred at the time of the Erie Interstadial, with generally sparse vegetative cover.
