Most tourists and visitors who have driven along the Yellowhead Route can recall a landmark that is situated in the community of Gladstone, Manitoba – The Happy Rock.
The concept of the Happy Rock goes back to the late 1970s when the provincial government held brainstorming sessions with community representatives to develop and implement strategies for increasing tourism traffic and inevitably tourism dollars in their respective rural communities.
Gladstone has always been referred to as "Happy Rock” and the consensus felt that a method to attract tourism to the town was to position Gladstone as Happy Rock.
In 1984, the local Chamber of Commerce decided that they needed a mascot to represent the name Happy Rock so a logo contest was held. Jerry Wickstead, a student from William Morton Collegiate in Gladstone, submitted the winning entry.
The Chamber of Commerce registered Happy Rock as a trademark and in 1988, a resolution was passed by the Chamber to pursue the construction of a Happy Rock statue/visitor information centre. Many communities in the province had an identifiable feature and Gladstone needed to be included. A committee of Chamber representatives (Tom Scott, Lyle Cox, and Gary Cibula) was formed to source out manufacturers, prepare operating budgets, and propose various methods of fundraising for the project.

Big Grass Marsh
Ducks Unlimited conserved its first acre of water in 1938 on Big Grass Marsh, just north of Gladstone, Manitoba. The Marsh was origionally a sprawling wetland complex spanning 100,000 acres (40,500 ha), but between 1909 and 1916 it was drained for agriculture. Instead of yielding the fertile fields that locals had envisioned, Big Grass soon became a desolate tract of dust and silt. When Engineer Bill Campbell arrived to restore the marsh in 1938, a grateful community praised Ducks Unlimited restoration work.
Today, Big Grass Marsh is a 12,400 acre (5,000 ha) complex, half of which is Crown Land and the remainder owned by the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone. The Northern Zone consists of 220 quarter sections of land north of Provincial Road #265, and the Southern Zone has 227 quarter sections of land south of Provincial Road #265.
Big Grass Marsh is an Important Bird Area of Canada. It is an important moulting and staging area for waterfowl including Mallards, Snow Geese and Canada Geese. The site also has globally significant numbers of nesting Franklin's Gulls. During fall migration, the number of Mallard Ducks in the area have exceed 10,000 birds. As many as 6,500 migrating Sandhill Cranes have been recorded in the northern portion of Big Grass Marsh, around the Jackfish Lake region.
