I love visiting the center winter and summer. There is a nice little cafe on the second floor so you can munch your favorite food and look out over the marsh. A hidden gem in this area!

This informative Centre offers Duck Carving (through the Winter months) by very knowledgeable carvers. Love the classes. Year round educational activities, such as bird banding, bird counting, identifying critters of the marsh, all make for great family outings.

If you go in the summer, remember to hose yourself down with mosquito repellent. The provincial bird AKA the mosquito is more than alive and well in these marshlands. Besides the ubiquitous mosquito there are all sorts of wildlife to see. We were fortunate to...More

I believe it's pet friendly with dogs on a leash but probably best to check with them
