Cedar Trail – Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary


This trail will lead you through some important deer habitat. The cedar that you see here not only provides good shelter for the deer during winter but it is also an important food source. A good example of succession is evident along this trail where a field is slowly returning to a forest.

The Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary was established in 1961 on lands acquired by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission after the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway. It covers 9,000 hectares of a variety of wildlife habitats including a mature upland forest, early successional woods, old fields, wetlands and open water.

With more than 8 km of self-guided nature trails winding through these habitats, the seasoned birder and amateur naturalist alike have excellent opportunities to view close to 200 waterfowl, raptor, passerine and other bird species.
