Life is wild in Manitoba. From Churchill to Winnipeg, the prairies are alive with the majestic, the elusive, the ferocious and the cute. From April 18 to 24, pay tribute to all things nature in Manitoba with an epic celebration of wildlife, plantlife and all the adventures in between.

Our Visitor Information Centre at The Forks is where the festivities come alive, with a wild weekend of animals and plant life from our nature destinations and information on our EcoExplore MB program.
