Take flight to Vancouver’s North Shore to get close to our feathered friends with a bit of bird watching or birding! Vancouver’s North Shore’s natural landscape is home to a wild and varied wealth of wildlife. All four seasons you can find a variety of birds.
The conservation area at Maplewood Flats is the North Shore’s only wild bird sanctuary. The site includes a 96-hectare intertidal area composed of mudflats and salt marsh. A 30-hectare upland area features deciduous and mixed forest, rough grassland, and freshwater marsh habitats. More than two hundred and fifty species of birds have been observed here.
