A Great Success

The Mother’s Day Tea event held at The Sanctuary on May 7th was an absolute hit!

We loved seeing everyone come celebrate Mother’s Day with their friends and family.

Here are some photos from the event:

Spring has landed
at the Sanctuary!

It’s been a long and chilly winter and we’re incredibly happy that the longer (and sunnier) days have arrived!

Here is what we have on the go this spring:

As you know, one of our favourite times of the year is when we celebrate our founder’s, Jack Miner, birthday. Lucky for us, the week of his birthday has been dubbed National Wildlife Week, which means we get to celebrate longer.

Come enjoy the outdoors, a museum tour and grab a cupcake to celebrate 157 years of Jack!

The History of Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary

Did you know that Jack Miner’s love for birds started when he was just a young boy?

He spent his days as a school-aged boy in creeks and woods studying the habits of waterfowl and other wildlife.

By age 40, he had already formed one of the first Game Protection Associations and founded The Jack Miner Migratory Bird Sanctuary for the conservation of migrating Canada geese and wild ducks.

Jack accomplished many amazing things in his lifetime, and we are here to celebrate him!
