The Delta Marsh Field Station (DMFS) was an environmental education and research facility founded in 1966 by Dr. Jennifer M. Shay and managed by the University of Manitoba. It was located on the southern shore of Lake Manitoba, about 100 km northwest of Winnipeg. The station provided an important venue for teaching undergraduates and graduates about ecology and the practice of science. Indeed work at the station produced over 130 theses and 370 journal publications spanning ecology and the environmental science, with work on both plants and animals. It was closed in 2011 after 44 years of operation.
