Watch Your Time
The Sanctuary closes for business at 4

their vehicles and going home by 5 pm.
Important Construction Notice
Our indoor washrooms next to the parking lot will be closed for renovations from August 16th to September 30th. Temporary portable toilets will be provided in the nearby picnic area. Visitors are advised that there will be limited picnic space and significant noise and disruptions during the construction period.
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). Remember to keep your distance from nesting birds right now, particularly the mud nests of Barn Swallows and the nestboxes in use by Tree Swallows (details). Please keep back at least 2 m from any of these nests.
Hot Weather Notices
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). There is an extreme fire hazard rating for Delta right now.
Remember to bring sunscreen and water with you for your walk. Taps in the washroom are drinkable water, and bottled water is generally available at the Gift Shop.
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)
