  • Nice to walk around. Would have been a 5 had there been any trumpet swans sighted. Was told that better time to see them would be in the winter. Still the views were great. It’s a very good place for photographers and birdwatchers. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. It’s one of three closely situated tourist attractions. If you’re up for a good hike, you could walk between the Martyr’s Shrine, Ste. Marie among the Hurons, and the Marsh.
  • I've been coming here for a couple of years now and I absolutely love it. In the spring/summer/fall, one can enjoy nature walks and the view of the marsh. In the winter, it is an excellent spot for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Very peaceful and not busy. My absolute favourite thing to do is to feed the Chickadees. Adorable little birds 😊
  • Awesome place! The bird caretaker Tom was amazing. So knowledgeable and friendly. Gave us an impromptu private show with the birds. Saw lots of trumpet swans too. So many.
  • Feeding wild birds from your hand is amazing. Birds of Prey exhibition is not to be missed on Saturday and Sunday. Staff interpreters are very knowledgeable and reply to questions in a way that I can understand. Strongly recommend for X-C skiing and snowshoeing. Bring your own equipment or rent it at Wye Marsh. Very clean facilities.
  • Wye Marsh wildlife centre is an excellent place for exploring nature. We just attended an excellent presentation on nature photography by Arni Stinnissen presented by the Midland-Penetanguishene Field Naturalists' Club. The Wye Marsh have extensive facilities, trails, staff and programs to help you explore and engage in nature. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, boardwalk, interpretive centre, etc. all make it a destination for nature exploration.
