Shoal Harbour Bird Sanctuary

The Shoal Harbour Migratory Bird Sanctuary is one of Canada's oldest designated Migratory Bird Sanctuaries (MBS). Created in 1931, the MBS encompasses 150 hectares of coastal marine environment. This area provides a shallow marine habitat with tidal mudflats rich in inviting biodiversity for migrating waterfowl, particularly for those that overwinter on the coast of British Columbia.

The nearby Resthaven Park is an excellent point of access for the MBS, providing a great view for bird watchers.

Sidney Museum and Archives

The temporary exhibits include everything from an annual Quilting display, a Teddy Bear Christmas Display, and the famous 3-month long Lego Exhibit.
