Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary

The Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary was established in 1961 on lands acquired by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission after the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The sanctuary covers 9,000 hectares of a variety of wildlife habitats, including: a mature upland forest, early successional woods, old fields, wetlands and open water. With more than 8 kilometers of self-guided nature trails winding through these habitats, the seasoned birder and amateur naturalist, alike, have excellent opportunities to view up to 200 waterfowl, raptor, passerine and other bird species.

Camping is also available at the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary. It is one of a variety of camping experiences offered by the Parks of the St. Lawrence.

The Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary is designated a cycle friendly site to visit!

Thank you to the various photographers who provide us with beautiful photos to decorate our page!

Calling all nature buffs! Catch glimpses of wildlife, take a leisurely or walk through the nature trails!
