About the Museum:

Oak Hammock Marsh is one of North America’s birding hotspots and a great destination for people of all ages. This 36 km2 Wildlife Management Area features a restored prairie marsh, aspen-oak bluff, waterfowl lure crops, artesian springs, some of Manitoba’s last remaining patches of tall-grass prairie and 30 kilometers of trails for you to explore.

This wetland is home to 300 species of birds, 25 species of mammals, numerous amphibians, reptiles, and fish, and countless invertebrates. During migration season, the number of waterfowl using the marsh during migration can exceed 100,000 daily!

This beautiful location offers the perfect setting for the award-winning Harry J. Enns Wetland Discovery Centre’s many engaging and educational programs. Open year-round, the Discovery Centre welcomes school groups and tourists for a variety of guided programs. The Discovery Centre also features a theatre, a scenic café, a gift shop, meeting rooms, rooftop observation deck, and interactive exhibits.
