Guided Bird Hikes
On the weekends of May 7 - 8 and May 14 - 15, you can join our Quest leaders on one of the Park’s official guided bird hikes. We’ll be leading various morning, afternoon and even evening excursions. These easy 2-hour excursions are limited to 12 participants (with a couple of exceptions) and all take place on easy, flat trails that cover a variety of habitats. We'll be finding and enjoying birds, interpreting their behaviours and giving you bird-finding and identification tips too!
