Long Description:
Vaseux Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary was established in 1923. It is a part of BirdLife International network of protected areas.

There is an information kiosk at the start of the walking trail that provides information about the habitat, local flora and fauna and this You Are Here Map.

There is a boardwalk that leads to the bird watching tower and other viewing areas.

This is a very short walk that leads to Vaseux Lake where more than 220 bird species frequent the area. There are several benches along the way to stop and enjoy the abundance of swans, ducks and geese and other wildlife in the area. The best time to visit is spring or fall.

Vaseux Lake supports nationally significant populations of Lewis's Woodpecker, Western Screech Owl, Flammulated Owls and Yellow-breasted Chat.
