With over 300 species, one day counts of over 300,000, and over one million birds annually, it's no surprise that the Quill Lakes region is Canada's most nationally and internationally recognized bird Areas. The lakes are designated a globally important Ramsar wetland, a Saskatchewan Heritage Marsh, a Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve, an accredited Watchable Wildlife Viewing Area, Saskatchewan's first Important Bird Area, and anchor to the Saskatchewan Bird Trail.

With more incoming flights than Toronto and Vancouver combined you'll soon discover why this area is known as the 'Land of Living Skies'. Northern lights and gorgeous sunsets are common backdrops to spectacular displays of bird in flight. Over one million shorebirds, ducks, geese, cranes, and songbirds stop here while traveling North America's Central Flyway, with flocks in the tens of thousands. Endangered species include the piping plover, peregrine falcon, and the whooping crane.

School outings, bus tours, and birding groups welcome.
