Oak Hammock Marsh
Oak Hammock Marsh is something right out of a birdwatcher's wildest dreams. During migration season, more than 400,000 waterfowl pass through the marsh each day. But even when fowl aren't heading out of town, the area still serves as home to approximately 300 species of birds. Thirty kilometres of trails pass by prime viewing sites as they weave through prairie marshes, fields, and wooded terrain.
The marsh, however, is by no means an exclusively avian community. Reptiles, amphibians, and 25 species of mammals also list the area as their home address. Visitors often see them while out on the water canoeing or fishing (license required). At the marsh's edge, a grass-roofed building houses the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre, which hosts informative classes and special events in addition to a café, gift shop, and 120-seat theatre.
