Fort Whyte Centre is a natural area for recreation and is a treat for avid birdwatchers. It is one of the most popular places to take the kids for a day of adventure and discovery. Located on 200 acres of pristine marshland, the center is seasonal home to more than 200 species of birds and innumerable species of bugs and other critters. The center can also be hired for private parties and events in the midst of natural glory. The Buffalo Stone Cafe is a wonderful place to chill after a day of great activity. Call or visit the website for details of the numerous programs and tours available.
My husband and I visited in November 2009. As we entered the centre, we saw a flock of geese milling about around a huge greenhouse that's located beside a farm building. Some of the geese were visibly injured with broken wings. My husband and I are wildlife rehabilitators from North Carolina so we were concerned about these geese as we know how brutal winters are in Winnipeg. We brought up our concern with the folks at the front desk, suggesting that these geese needed to either be fed or rescued or they would starve to death or succumb to predators. We couldn't believe our ears when we heard what they told us. They told us that if the geese were fed, they wouldn't fly south!! Hello!! These geese have BROKEN WINGS. No matter how much you feed them, they will not fly south because they CANNOT fly south! Fort Whyte positions itself as an educational establishment. This is NOT the proper way to educate the public by providing misinformation. While visiting the facility, we could see how much Fort Whyte promotes the Canada geese. Their photos are on brochures, etc. So they're existing from memberships, donations, entry fees and tax money and they're using the geese to promote their facility, yet they're completely ignoring the plight of the injured geese on their grounds. This is completely unacceptable and we wonder if the residents of Winnipeg, the taxpayers and the donors and members of Fort Whyte know about this. If they do, they definitely should not be funding this terrible lie that is Fort Whyte. Another issue we have is Fort Whyte's logo: Human Nature. It's not human nature to ignore the plight of animals, whether they're wild or domesticated, if you see that they're suffering right before your eyes. Fort Whyte is one BIG LIE. Don't visit! Don't donate!
Took my two grandsons fishing there. Paid $17.00 and was led to believe that this covered the entire season. Went back four days later and was informed that it was going to cost another $17.00. It looks like this facility is geared towards the more affluent. Staff aloof and authoritarian.
