Oak Hammock Marsh

Although the marsh is frozen for most of the winter, there are still quite a few activities that allow visitors to enjoy and explore the wonderful world of wetlands and discover what creatures call this place home. Try snowshoeing, Oak Hammock Marsh provides guided snowshoe hikes throughout the day and visitors can also borrow a pair if they wish to explore the marsh on their own. The frozen marsh also makes the perfect natural skating rink, as long as the snow cover is not too deep. Or you can look for animal tracks in the snow. Even if most wildlife is either gone south or sleeping until the spring, a few marsh residents remain active all year long. Contact: 204-467-3300 | ohm@ducks.ca
