Wilderness Edge Retreat was ideally suited to the needs of our group for a 3-day field trip in the Bird River greenstone belt. We were 26 geologists from Canada and elsewhere, including Finland, South Africa and the UK. The comprehensive on-line registration system is very well set up; it was easy to use and simplified adjustments by affording subsequent updating. The facilities afforded a choice of several venues for evening presentations, the rooms were fine – set up in various different formats that made the task of room allocation quick and simple. The expansive grounds with the backdrop of the Winnipeg River – with ambling deer and gambolling squirrels etc. – conveyed a wonderful atmosphere to return to each day. The food was great, and staff likewise – courteous and helpful. For groups such as ours, no matter how large or small, Wilderness Edge Retreat would be an obvious choice as a base for field activities in southeast Manitoba. Thanks to our hosts Mr and Mrs. Penner, and all the staff at Wilderness Edge!
