Bird Watching

A fascinating pastime, bird watching is becoming increasingly popular. Our Conservation Areas are equipped with convenient parking areas, pleasant trails and good viewing areas. Some include viewing towers to help support in the pursuit of viewing our feathered friends.

Where to Enjoy this Activity


  • Bring sunscreen, mosquito repellent, water, binoculars and camera.
  • You may also want to take a bird identification reference book, a notebook and a pen.
  • To see the most diverse array of birds, generally best to arrive earlier in the morning.
  • Take your litter home with you.
