If you go in the summer, remember to hose yourself down with mosquito repellent. The provincial bird AKA the mosquito is more than alive and well in these marshlands. Besides the ubiquitous mosquito there are all sorts of wildlife to see. We were fortunate to see hundreds of pelicans fly over us – which were pretty amazing. There was a... More

I took my 2 1/2,year old grandson for a visit. It was terrific we toured the entire inside and then walked around outside looking at the ducks and mud hens. We even saw a few muskrats. We then went upstairs for a drink and had a couple of cookies. Everything was very good nice friendly atmosphere. I'm sure we will... More

Friendly welcoming staff and well indicated maps and trails. So much wildlife to see, it is breathtaking. There are many benches to sit on to take it all in along the way as well. Lots of parking.

Have always wanted to go and have a bite to eat at their Cafe. Well, today it happened! There is no admission if you are only visiting the Cafe and using the trails. The food was very fresh and tasty. There were 2 options of soup; one was French onion and the other a chick-pea garlic sausage soup. The chick... More

We visited the marsh on a sunny +12C,breezy day today (April 25th). The trails and gravel roads are now passable and give access to many birdy sites. In 90 minutes we witnessed most of Manitoba's duck species mostly in very large numbers - literally thousands. A snowy owl and rough-legged hawks which are usually here in winter were still hanging... More

Picture a big empty garbage bag. Now throw in a bunch of long stinky weeds. Then throw in a bunch of bugs and ducks and whatever natural stuff you can find that resembles something gross you'd find in the ditch between highways after a month of heavy rain. Shake that bag up and dump it out in a giant room... More

What a place to observe nature, wildlife all around. The interior exhibits are very informative & interesting for all ages, will bring out the kid in all of us. It's the outside that can't be beat, use the hiking trails or just sit outside the door & let nature come to you. A real treat is being on the roof-top... More

I also had the opportunity to experience a guided canoe which was very fun and neat to the see the marsh from a... More

We went to oak hammock marsh really nice day, so we started exploring the trails and you had to be very careful where you walk. Lots of gopher holes on paths. After realizing that most people just sit at the end and watch the birds coming in. Nice for young children to explore and have an insight of the way... More
