Bird Watching

When migratory birds fly south for the winter, they follow the best possible route for accessing food and appropriate habitat.

In British Columbia, the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area is on a flyway second in volume only to the coastal route – with more than 100,000 migrating water birds visiting each year. For visitors, this translates into incredible birdwatching opportunities.

Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area

Twice a year, exotic tundra swans touch down in the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area to refuel and rest, but many other species also call the area home. In fact, there are almost 300 varieties of birds here, along with numerous species of mammal, fish, amphibian, and reptile. Many are considered species at risk.

The area, which has been designated as an internationally significant wetland (Ramsar Site), is not only a spectacular resource for birdwatchers and naturalists, but also a fascinating, informative, and entertaining place for anyone that has an interest in nature. It is affordable and hard to equal for a family outing.
