Explore the 2.6 km trails of this ecosystem, guided by Taylor Gavin of Brokenhead First Nation and Peggy Bainard Acheson of the Manitoba Orchid Society. The wetland contains traditional medicinal plants, orchids and carnivorous plants, including 23 provincially rare species. There will be a tour, followed by some time for independent drawing, painting or writing.

Please bring your own snacks, drinks and art supplies. No dogs, please. Washrooms are available. Sunscreen and hats are recommended. The trails are wheelchair accessible.

The bus will depart MAWA at 12:30pm. If you are travelling in your own vehicle, meet us there at 1:45pm.

To register for the bus (wheelchair accessible), contact Adriana at and put “Brokenhead” in the subject header. Spaces will be limited. Please, if you register and cannot attend, we need to know several days in advance so that someone on the waiting list can be advised. We estimate that the bus will arrive back at MAWA around 6 pm.

Free, all welcome! Registration required for the bus. Email Adriana at and put "Brokenhead" in the subject line to sign up.
