Open year round, Wye Marsh is an excellent place to get outdoors and get close to nature. Situated on 3,000 acres of National and Provincial Wildlife Area, the centre is teaming with fantastic wildlife viewing opportunities. From trumpeter swans to painted turtles there is always something to see from the 25 km of trails and boardwalks. We also offer naturalist guided tours and programs that will take you into the marsh. We offer guided canoe/kayak tours, walks with a naturalist and equipment rentals (bike, ski and snowshoe) to further explore the marsh. Our interpretive centre has live reptiles and amphibians and birds of prey demonstrations. Throughout the year we run special events, workshops and speaker presentations. Escape, explore and experience nature at it's best with Wye Marsh.

A great trail system allows access to a range of natural habitat. The marsh boardwalk trail is excellent to see marsh animals, birds, and plants. The entry charge is high ($25 for 2 people), but the experience is special. There is a small gift shop....More

I really enjoyed my visit to Wye Marsh. There was hardly any mosquitoes, the trails were well maintained. The turtle display was under construction, so not much to see there. But the birds of prey was interesting.

This center is a series of very interesting trails and educational opportunities for people of all ages. The trails are not strenuous as far as hills and stairs are concerned and can be taken in series or shortcuts taken. The animals and very interesting.
