WINNIPEG — A new funding agreement is in place for Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre to ensure stability for the next five years.
Under the new provincial agreement, announced on Monday, the Manitoba government is providing $1.12 million to the interpretive centre under the guidance of Ducks Unlimited Canada.
“What better time than Earth Day to announce our continued support for the facility and the work being done at Oak Hammock Marsh,” said Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires.
“One of the core values of our Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan is the enhanced protection and preservation of wetlands, and the work Ducks Unlimited Canada is doing at Oak Hammock Marsh is a model we are proud to support.”
Oak Hammock Marsh is a 36-square-kilometre wildlife management area showcasing a restored prairie marsh, aspen-oak bluff, artesian springs and some of the last remaining patches of tall-grass prairie habitat in Manitoba.
