Turtle River Marshes

The Turtle River Marshes project is located at the mouth of the Turtle River where it enters Dauphin Lake.  The property supports a substantial marsh system, which provides important breeding, foraging, and staging habitat for waterfowl and colony nesting birds.

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.
