Treasure of the Lower Mainland

Always some to see and experience. Fall and winter is the best time to see many species but there is often a little animal surprise coming around a corner.

My family goes every year and feed the variety of migratory birds, ducks and geese. Westham is quaint little island town with a bit of a troll who works by the bridge. If you stop on his property to take pictures of the float homes, you may meet the troll--do not talk to him. You have been warned. Outside of... More

My first visit here was by chance...I had come from Steveston to Ladner to have my dog groomed after my groomer moved her business. Instead of going home and returning, I decided to visit Reifel Sanctuary. What a FABULOUS place! A great destination for solo, couples, friends, families! I spent 3 hours roaming the trails and mounting viewing platforms or... More

A great spot to walk and soak up nature while doing some bird watching. Check out the vistas of the north shore mountains from this unusual perspective. Definitely worth the price of admission.

There are trails to meander along, birds to watch, ducks to feed. It's pretty and peaceful in any season. What's not to love?

It was a week day outing....the admission was almost nothing..and we are greeted by geese, pigions, ducks and cranes. What a thrill to not only be greeted by our fine and overly friendly feathers friends..... they all wanted to be fed by hand. The bags of feed were cheap....$1.00 but the thrill of feeding wood ducks, cranes, mallard ducks and... More
