Garbage and old fishing line pose a threat to the numerous waterfowl and other wildlife that live in the marshes where the Turtle River flows into Dauphin Lake. Join NCC staff in cleaning up garbage along the riverbanks and lakeshore of our Turtle River Marshes property.

This clean-up event will include a picnic lunch and an opportunity to explore the property with NCC staff. Bring along your binoculars, and maybe catch a glimpse of the many birds that spend time in this area.

NCC acquired Turtle River Marshes with the assistance of the Government of Canada’s Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP), a unique public-private partnership to accelerate the pace of land conservation across southern Canada.
