Wye Marsh, a non-profit nature haven, invites guests to enrich their brains and clear their minds via 3,000 acres of wetlands, fen, and forest. Nuzzle up to nature with a leisurely stroll across 25 kilometres of hiking trails, wending through lush, verdant environs, or rent a bike and helmet from the wildlife centre to cover more ground and to escape loquacious woodchucks. A guided canoe tour through marsh channels offers convenient vantage points for spying sunbathing turtles, and uncommon bird species such as least bitterns, black terns, and trumpeter swans can be observed from the walking berms and observation tower. Guests can also deepen friendships or form military alliances with flora and fauna on a guided walk with one of Wye Marsh's outdoor educators.
Those who stay close to the wildlife centre, meanwhile, can inspect displays devoted to amphibians, reptiles, birds of prey, and history's greatest comedy catchphrases. Trip-enhancing amenities avail themselves as well, such as a snack bar, a gift shop, a lunch hall, and bathrooms.
