The centre-piece TWC is its 15 ha fresh-water wetland, designed specifically for teaching and learning about wetlands. The impoundment was constructed adjacent to the campus of Tantramar Regional High School, situated on the edge of the world famous Tantramar Marshes. Just steps away from the cattails is the centre’s 6,000 ft2 indoor facility that provides laboratory space and a fully wired teaching theatre to support the outdoor programs. In 2002, TWC joined forces with The Canadian Wildlife Service in the renovation of a large abandoned fishing camp inside the Tintamarre National Wildlife Area and establish The Jolicure Lakes Field Station to further extend TWC’s experiential programming options. This site is located just 20 minutes from the wetlab by school bus.
