Bird Watching

Please review our Visitor Protocols prior to visiting all Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) locations. Prior to coming to a location, every visitor must do the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19. If they do not pass the assessment, they should not visit the location.

With more than 18,000 hectares of land under its care, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) provides access to some of the best bird watching locations in the region.
