Want to witness one of the wonders of the natural world, just 90 minutes outside Winnipeg? Every spring, thousands of red-sided garter snakes come together in roiling balls intent on mating. Join the MAWA community for 2.5 hours of independent watching, drawing, painting or writing en plein air.

Manitoba Conservation has worked hard to make this site wheelchair accessible. Bring your own food, drink and art supplies. Outhouse washrooms are available. Sunscreen and hats are recommended, as there isn’t much shade along the trails.

Bus will depart from MAWA at 12:30pm and will return around 6pm

Free! All welcome. Weather permitting (the snakes like sunshine!) Travel to Narcisse in your own vehicle or register for the wheelchair accessible bus to depart from MAWA. To register for the bus email Alison at and put "Snakes" in the subject header.
