We would like to acknowledge that we are in Treaty 1 territory, the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
In the fall of 2022, the site was blessed and a pipe ceremony held in our amphitheater. It was a special event, and all who participated were extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn, grow and understand.

The Wetland Discovery Centre was started as joint project between Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and the Province of Manitoba.
The Centre is located on the edge of the Oak Hammock Marsh Wildlife Management Area and is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to “Connect People with Wetlands”.
Oak Hammock Marsh is one of North America’s birding hotspots and a great destination for people of all ages. This 36km2 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 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 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 Wetland Discovery Centre welcomes school groups and tourists for a variety of guided programs. The Wetland Discovery Centre also features a theatre, a scenic café, a gift shop, meeting rooms, rooftop observation deck, and interactive exhibits.
