We had a wonderful time at Oak Hammock Marsh. The marsh is beautiful, and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They told us exactly which trails would be most suitable for children (4 and 9) and where we could see some adorable ground squirrels. My children also loved the exhibits. We stayed for nearly 4 hours, and my children... More

I was not sure what to do on a layover of a couple days in Winnipeg. Fortunately, I located Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre and we visited two days in a row. Very friendly staff. Great place for bird photography. Besides the birds, some very cute ground squirrels. Then they told us where to go to see hundreds of white... More

After hearing about Oak Hammock for years, I finally had the opportunity to experience it for myself on my way home from a days work at Matlock. Thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to walk the trails and paths with my camera. There were several large guided tours going on, even though it was the middle of the week. The abundance of... More

I believe that parents should encourage their children to care for our planet and Fort White is an excellent place for young people to learn while having a great day at the same time. My kids learned so much here last summer and they've talked about going back ever since.

Went to this year's farwell migration concert at Oak Hammock and had a wonderful time. It was a really nice evening - with a string quartet, wine tasting, silent auction - all to support a great facility. Will go next year for sure

My son loves catching toads so we headed out here. He was happy to see lots of different animals. We may have gone in September, but we did find a few toads. Probably more in the spring. We liked that it was free and enjoyed walking over all the boardwalks. There is an admittance fee to get into the building... More

ur guide had only been there a short time and was not very well informed. The day we visited it was very cold and windy. We guide took us on a guided walk, but coming back, I raced ahead to get out of the wind. The building is unusual with rock walls meant to mimic a rock outcrop and a... More

Our first visit to Oak Hammock Marsh was in the fall. We went as a family and simply walked around the well marked trails and boardwalks over the marsh. Perfect for snapping a few shots of the family in a relaxed setting. I have gone with guides for fields trips with my childrens' school and I'm impressed with staff patience... More

The marsh is a huge, multi-thousand hectare preserve of a botanical system which is accessible to trails and by the Marsh's Montreal Canoes. The Visitor Centre at the Marsh is small, but it... More
