Mud Lake Conservation Area Trail
Located in Port Colborne beside the Old Welland Canal, Mud Lake is truly a conservation area dedicated to the preservation of vegetation and wildlife. Encompassing over 60 hectares of wetland and 54 hectare of field and woodland, Mud Lake offers nature trails, limited hunting, superb bird watching and fishing. Noted for its importance as an observation site along the flight path of many migratory birds, Mud Lake claims numerous rare bird sightings and provides a unique setting for both novice and expert bird watchers. Open water, field and woodland make Mud Lake the perfect habitat setting for observing wildlife. Local birders have observed an extreme diversity of resident and migratory species at this site.
