Every year, we organize a contest where participants have to guess date and time of the arrival of the first goose at the Marsh. The person with the closest guess wins the prize.
You can enter your guess below for your chance to win a plush Canada goose and one-year family membership to the Wetland Discovery Centre at Oak Hammock Marsh.
Only one guess per participant. Entries will be accepted starting on January 26, 12:00 CST, 2024 and ending on February 29, 12:00 CST, 2024 or until the first goose is seen. The first Canada goose has to be seen and/or verified by an employee of the Wetland Discovery Centre at Oak Hammock Marsh and be located within the physical limits of the Oak Hammock Marsh Wildlife Management Area to be counted as the first goose.
