George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Delta

Peregrine falcons, Siberian swans, bald eagles, blue herons, and over 260 other species inhabit the sanctuary, which provides ample opportunity to see these birds in the wild.

Wooden hides, an observation tower, and 3 km (1.8 mi) of winding trails all offer excellent vantage points for observing birds. Make George C.

  • Wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon stroll in the park and watch the birds. Very well kept place! The drive is a bit out of the way but well worth the visit. There is a small admission fee.  more »

  • Totally peaceful. It was raining throughout most of the lower mainland, but sunny in Ladner so not many people at the sanctuary. I had a nice relaxing afternoon. Love it!
  • This place is great! You could spend hours here, and not get bored. Bird Watching, Wildlife Photography, and Scenery.
  • Great place to see all kinds of birds and even feed them. Kids enjoyed it and wants to go again! (That was two years ago and a friend asked about where to see birds this season and my son asked me to write this review and he gave 5stars!)
  • At 242 logged sightings, this is one of the best places for birders of any experience level to have a good a time. 5 dollars to get in, plenty of blinds, and a heated lunchroom make it even better!
  • Such a great experience! Probably the most fun I've had with all 3 of my kids who range in ages (2, 5, 8). The best was learning about different types of birds, feeding them and the gorgeous scenery! We will be back during the summer as well - the Sanctuary is a great place to go year-round!
