What Event Sponsorship Looks Like:
- Advertisements in event literature
- Company logo in event advertising
- Banners featuring your company’s logo
- Vendor booths
- Free tickets to events for company staff
- Sponsorship of various activity stations including the popular Sugar Shack or Bannock Roasting
Uniforms are required for permanent staff, summer staff including camp counsellors, and volunteers. Uniform sponsorship will showcase your business as well as demonstrate your support of the Wye Marsh.
The Wye Marsh Adoption Program is integral to the care of the captive birds and reptiles that call the Wye Marsh home. Adoptions are for a one year period during which your company name and logo will be displayed in in one of our most high traffic areas; our Display Hall or Birds of Prey Field. Please see our adoption webpage here for more information.
Wye Marsh Spaces
Wye Marsh’s facilities are enjoyed by over 30,000 visitors annually. This new sponsorship initiative was
developed to raise funds for the maintenance and care of various structures at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre.
Visitor Centre Sign—Main Parking Lot
All visitors walk by this sign which directs them to the main building.
This multi-function room seats over 100 people and is used for the Fundraising Dinner, visiting school groups, as well as being rented out for weddings and a corporate meeting room.
Blue Room—Main Hall
This room is used for meetings, smaller school and private groups, as well as by Wye Marsh Day Campers.
Over 45 feet tall and located at the edge of the cattails, the Observation Tower is one of the most popular stops along our trails. Open all year long, it provides a panoramic view of Wye Marsh’s 2,000 ha.
Our outdoor pavilion is the primary area for drop-off and pick-up of the Wye Marsh day campers, as well as rented for family gatherings and other special events.
Just a few steps from the Main Hall are the two sleeping cabins and the kitchen and dining cabin. These cabins are regularly rented by the Scouts, Guides and public and private school groups.
Please contact us at 705-526-7809 extension 201 to arrange a meeting to discuss sponsorship opportunities that align with your company’s goals, or if you have any questions about sponsorship at Wye Marsh.
We understand the importance of corporate charitable giving, and we thank you in advance for considering the Wye Marsh.
