MARS Wildlife Visitor Centre is happy to announce the Stage 3 restart of tours by donation at our Merville home.

Each weekend through the summer, MARS will be providing safe, family-friendly tours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Beginning July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, the outdoor tours will be scheduled each half-hour from 11:00 to 2:30 for groups no larger than 8 people per tour.

Due to COVID – 19 restrictions, we regret the Visitor Centre display area remains closed for the near future, but the gift shop will be open.

To prevent crowding, long line ups, and to maintain social distancing we are asking our guests to “pre-book” through the EventBrite form, above.

Our volunteer guides wish to offer you a safe family experience; please follow their instructions while on the MARS site. We will be providing hand sanitizer outside and at the building for all to use before entering the gift shop or before using our washroom, and ask that you stay a “wingspan” apart from non-family members to ensure everyone’s safety. 

We have been very busy through the COVID- 19 closures and MARS has much to show you that is new. With over 500 patients so far this year, we are very grateful to our community members who support our efforts to save wildlife patients. Please pre-book your tour, above, and help MARS help wildlife, one patient at a time.
