uManitoba closes Delta Marsh Field Station

November 29, 2011

Operated by the University of Manitoba's science faculty since 1966, the Delta Marsh Field Station is closing for good. The facility was hit by widespread flooding this past spring and damage was extensive. A committee was tasked with trying to find a way to save the research station, but uManitoba recently learned that the property would no longer qualify for insurance. The institution is now exploring ways to continue at least 10 ongoing research projects that had been linked to the field station. CBC
