Oak Hammock Marsh: Summer Bird Census

June 24, 6:45 am to noon
Call us at 467-3300 to register before June 21.
After the morning walk, a lunch will be served and prizes awarded.

Each year, the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre conducts a series of surveys to count the animals found at the Marsh. Some surveys are done daily, some weekly and others yearly. 

Surveys are a great way to learn more about wetlands and animals, and get involved in conservation efforts. 

The annual Summer Bird Census helps determine which species of birds nest at the marsh and is a great way to improve bird observation skills. 

Teams of volunteers, consisting of one expert and some novices, walk a section of the dike system, recording everything seen and heard.  

The Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre is located 20 minutes north of Winnipeg on highway 67 between highways #7 and #8. 
For more information call 467-3300, Jacques Bourgeois
