  • For CanadianThanksgiving this year we decided to spare the turkey and do some bird watching instead of bird-eating. So we put on a warm coat, comfy walking shoes, and made our way to the Reifel Migrat...  more »
  • On a sunny day and a pleasant walk with your better half - this is a place to get out amongst nature and see the wildlife. Take some seed with you to feed the birds and enjoy being outdoors!  more »

  • Super fun place to watch and feed the birds. The nature walk is also very fun for the kids. Price is $5 per adult and $3 for kids and seniors. They won't let you enter after 4pm, but you have up to 5pm before they close the gate. The family really loves the place and we'll definitely come again
  • Excellent place to get up close with some birds. When I went in August, there were Canada geese and ducks everywhere. The office sells bags of seeds for the birds for only $1. One bag is more than enough for one person. They don't allow anyone to enter after 4pm so plan accordingly.
