Delta Marsh Field Station

updated 22 March 2011

The Delta Marsh Field Station, a research and teaching facility of the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Canada), is located on the south shore of Lake Manitoba (98°23'W, 50°11'N). It borders Delta Marsh, a “Wetland of International Significance” under the Ramsar Convention, that is one of the largest lacustrine marshes in North America.

The Field Station property is part of a designated game-bird refuge and wildlife protection area, most of which was designated in 1987 as an ecologically significant area. Established in 1966, the Station is based at Mallard Lodge, one of the finest lodges on the marsh, that was built in 1932 on the estate of noted athlete and businessman Donald H. Bain.
