Birding at Maplewood Flats

From monthly bird surveys, guided nature walks, to wild bird habitat conservation workshops, The Conservation Area at Maplewood Flats provides many opportunities for beginner and experienced birders alike to deepen our lifelong love for wild birds.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our on-site group events are limited or currently postponed. However, The Conservation Area at Maplewood Flats is open to the public for self-guided tours and birding activities. We request all our visitors to observe appropriate Covid-19 protocols. Visit the Greeter Hut for more information.
