The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the various breeds of birds and the history of Jack Miner and his family. Spent some time hiking in the Kennedy woods(that has a couple of picnic tables) as well. The parking along the road is free. I highly recommend Jack Miner's to visit on a nice day.

Museum was closed when I visited, but I could walk the grounds and go into the lookout. Main point is that Jack Miner was an early and ultimately influential conservationist who was mindful of the need for geese to have a place to rest during migration. He devoted his life to creating that area. The geese are still coming - they haven't forgotten him - and nor should we.

Jack Miner's is an amazing sanctuary built in early 1930's to help build the population of Canada Geese. It is the development of the research and monitoring of migrating birds as well. A small museum and observation building are not to be missed but you must have an interest in the desires of the Miner Family.

I have seen more geese in farmers fields than what I have seen there.There used to be a lot more here and in my opinion it has really gone downhill.

Birds are there all year but the Canadian geese organize to head south in the fall. Fenced area has various unique birds. A lot of free parking available. Donation is optional. Short visit.

IF you are in this part of Ontario (one hour from Detroit Michigan and Windsor Ontario) and love Canada Geese and can spare the time visiting Jack Miner's world famous (established in 1904) Bird Sanctuary is a do-not-miss experience. Timing IS everything. The true prime time to visit is during the active migration season of the Canada Geese which is early Spring and late Autumn. The museum is very interesting as is the renovated Jack Miner home. There are Canada Geese who live the year around at the sanctuary and you can mix and mingle with them and feed them corn which is provided. The geese will come up to you and take the corn from your hand. There are other sights to visit nearby as well. I love the venue.

I wouldn't say Jack Miner's was poor but the bird watching certainly was. We visited on October October 24, 2014 at around noon. The only birds were some peacocks in cages and a few geese floating on a tiny enclosed pond. We spent about ten minutes and saw everything. Very possibly this was the wrong time of day and if flocks of migrating birds spent the night in the fields they had all left by this time. Fortunately we noticed signs for a wine tour of the area and spent the entire afternoon visiting terrific wineries along the Lake Erie shore. I will most certainly return for the wineries but am afraid Jack Miners isn't the same as my memories from childhood.

There was a book reading at the Bird Sanctuary on Sunday by a well known local author. Jane Buttery who has published several books that share a relationship to the Sanctuary, A great day for all the visitors.
