AAA Editor Notes

The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary, 3 km (1.9 mi.) n. off Division Rd. and w. on Concession Rd. 3, covers 809 hectares (2,000 acres). Established in 1904 by conservationist Jack Miner, this sanctuary was the model for approximately 250 subsequent refuges in the United States. Thousands of migratory Canada geese and wild ducks can be seen during peak migration seasons. The best time for viewing the birds is from 3 to dusk during the last 2 weeks of March and the first week of April (weather permitting), and all of November and early December. A small museum has a map showing the flight course followed by the birds. Staff members demonstrate feeding and are available to answer questions. Visitors may feed the birds.
Hours: Site open daily dawn-dusk. Historic Jack Miner House & Museum open by appointment and by chance. Tours must be booked 2 weeks in advance. Allow 30 minutes minimum.
