am- 4 pm every day
The Sanctuary is closed in the evenings.
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. In these next few months it will be dark before 5 pm.
Some Visitor Reminders.
Leave dogs or any other domestic animals at home, please. They are not allowed here and it is unkind to leave them in vehicles. Remember to stay on trails, particularly at this time of year, as trampled habitat often does not recover until April. This Migratory Bird Sanctuary is protect by the Government of Canada. Visitors are expected to watch and appreciate
wild birds without harming or disturbing them or their habitats. Do not chase birds or try to handle them. Bicycles, tricycles, sports equipment and technology with speakers are not allowed on trails or in our facilities. Note also that there is a year-round ban on smoking, or the cooking of food anywhere in the Sanctuary.(More information on birds this month and other visitor notices)
December 2014 News
The Snow Geese have been in the Fraser Delta since mid-October in large numbers. Having eaten some of the grass cover in some of the fields next to the Sanctuary, they are now spending much of their day on the foreshore marshes, with good views from our tower. On some specific days, they may be seen in a few fields on Westham Island still, but visitors, please be polite about where you park your vehicle when observing the birds, and do not enter any properties without the permission of the owners. In December many of them leave for the Skagit Estuary in Washington State.
The Ladner Christmas Bird Count will be held December 21st 2014 and will consist of volunteers counting birds all across Delta, a small part of south Richmond and part of Point Roberts. If you would like to help with this, please contact Jude Grass firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to sign up to help. See also this poster.
