The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary was established in 1904 by Jack Miner for the conservation of migrating geese and ducks. Naturalist, lecturer and humanitarian, Jack Miner devoted his life to conservation in the British Empire. National Wildlife Week held the week of April 10th each year, honors Jack Miner on his birthday. The Sanctuary is open Monday to Saturday. In accordance with his wishes it is free to the public and nothing is to be sold on the grounds. His grandson, Kirk, now runs the sanctuary. The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary is a stopping point for thousands of Canada Geese and ducks. The adjoining Kennedy Woods provides an opportunity to view bobolinks, songbirds and shorebirds.
