Wye Marsh has many hiking trails that can be used in the winter. They have ski and snowshoe rentals available. There is a sanctuary for Trumpeter Swans who stay all winter. The centre has made it easy to view the birds in the sanctuary.

We came here for snowshoeing with our small family in February. It was the second visit for us. The Centre offers beautiful trails with information stations and lookouts. Feeding the chickadees is great fun for adults and children alike. The staff is friendly and welcoming.

Best experience ever! We had Chickadees eating from our hands and from the top of our heads (we put seed on our heads). Adults loved it as much as the kids. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be in the summer time!
