Key Biodiversity Area & Waterfowl Monitoring Station

Encompassing wetlands and woodlands, Wye Marsh offers diverse habitat to many different birds. We are a designated Key Biodiversity Area. At our Waterfowl Monitoring Station take a look for a Trumpeter Swan. These elegant birds were brought back from the brink of extinction through the hard work of the Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Program. 

Birds of Prey Field 

Our Birds of Prey field is home to owls, hawks, a turkey vulture and a bald eagle. These beautiful birds are no longer able to survive in the wild and need our care. They act as Educational Animal Ambassadors about their species.  


The Friends of Wye Marsh is a not for profit organization whose mission is to be a centre for wetlands research, interpretation and education based on the principle of stewardship and the importance of environmental awareness'
