“Oak Hammock Marsh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

The interpretive centre is an educational experience for young and old alike. The building is fronted by plots of native tall-grass prairie vegetation. The magnificent diorama that greets you in the foyer is quite an intriguing exhibit of the bountiful marsh life to be found here.

“Great Fun for the Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

It's a bit of a drive from Winnipeg but in the end it is worth it. There's always something to do no matter what season. There's indoor and outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, stargazing, eco-tours etc. The staff is very helpful and great with children. Adults and children can learn a lot about nature from a visit here.
