Nearby attractions and activities:
WALK ON THE WILD SIDE- The Kitimat River Estuary is the most biologically productive area in the Kitimat Valley. Over 114 species, some very rare, have been recorded here. Peak birding times begin with the arrival of the eulachon fish (late March) and continue through to mid May. Expect to see ample numbers and species of ducks, geese, shorebirds, as well as a few unexpected visitors heading north to their Arctic breeding grounds.
PADDLE ON THE WILD SIDE- Lakelse Lake offers a superb opportunity to enjoy a relaxing canoe trip and spot some exciting birds at the same time. Lakelse Lake is alive with waterfowl and passerines from late April through to mid June. Paddle through the marsh area, up small meltwater streams, and straddle beaver dams. Loons and grebes’ haunting calls signal our arrival on the water while overhead Western Tanagers and Townsend’s Warblers feast on the abundant spring insects. Long dead snags make a welcome fast food outlet for Red-breasted Sapsuckers or a home for Violet-green Swallows. In the evening, a beaver, muskrat, or moose might make a welcome appearance.
A WILD, WEST COAST INLET- A boat ride along Douglas Channel offers excellent scenery, fresh salt air, and an opportunity to view one of BC’s endangered species - Marbled Murrelets. The first breeding record in British Columbia of Marbled Murrelet came from Gilttoyees Inlet, a northerly extension of Douglas Channel. We will journey back along this steep walled inlet and watch dozens of adults at close range feed, preen and rest in the quiet headwaters. When darkness approaches, they leave their watery restaurant and fly inland to secret nest sites.
