Located 20 minutes North of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Oak Hammock Marsh is one of North America’s birding hot spots 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.
Oak Hammock Marsh is home to 25 species of mammals, 300 species of birds, numerous amphibians, reptiles, and fish, and countless invertebrates. During migration season, the number of waterfowl using the marsh during migration can exceed 400,000 daily!
Award-winning Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Center is located on the edge of the marsh. This beautiful location offers the perfect setting for the Interpretive Centre’s many entertaining and educational programs. Open year-round, the Interpretive Center also welcomes group tours and school visits for programs like canoe excursions, snowshoe walks, and everyone’s favorite: critter dipping!
