Watch Your Time
The Sanctuary closes for business at 4
pm and visitors are not allowed entry after that. Visitors still
in the trail system then must be in
their vehicles and going home by 5 pm.
Important Renovation Notice (October 22nd)
Our indoor washrooms next to the parking lot have been closed since early September for renovations, but are now open to the public, and the portable toilets and construction dumpster are now all gone from the picnic area. Please treat the new facilities carefully. A few more fixtures are still to arrive, and there have been a few changes to provide better water pressure and automatic flush toilets and sinks. We are still figuring out how to fine-tune some of those items. There will now be some tidying up needed for the area in front of the entrances, so we ask all visitors to keep vehicles in the parking lot only and well away from picnic and washroom walkways.
Remember That This is a Bird Sanctuary
This Migratory Bird Sanctuary is protected by the Government of Canada. Visitors are expected to watch and appreciate
wild birds without harming or disturbing them or their habitats. Many visitor rules apply and many items are not allowed in the trail system (details).
Please leave dogs or any other domestic animals at home. They are not allowed here and it is unkind to leave them in vehicles. The Sanctuary is posted year-round as a No Smoking area, and all forms of cooking are prohibited (no barbecues,stoves or open flames).
Remember to bring a thermos of something hot if it is a cool day, as we do not serve any hot food or beverages. You may also want to bring water with you for your walk.
What Grows in the Sanctuary Stays in the Sanctuary
Visitors are not allowed to remove anything from the Sanctuary, so please do not pick berries, flowers and other plants, and remember to stay on the trails to avoid trampling bird habitats.(More information on birds this month and other visitor notices)
