About the event
No trip to Kingsville is complete without a visit to the world-renowned Jack Miner Migratory Bird Sanctuary. Discover a rich source of local and historical information with a guided tour. View 150 years of historical Miner archives and artifacts at the Jack Miner Museum. Spend some time exploring and learning about local wildlife and natural habitats on over 400 acres of natural landscape. The geese and ducks at Jack Miners are tagged in the same way that Jack did 100 years ago. Roll an authentic goose band to take home as a souvenir. Take a self-guided tour of the property. Hand feed geese and ducks with barley or take a hike in the Kennedy Woods Walking Trails.
Jack Miner became the founder of the Migratory Waterfowl Refuge System by establishing the Jack Miner Migratory Bird Sanctuary in 1904. Five years later he pioneered the banding of migrating waterfowl. The recovery data was instrumental in the establishment of the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1916 between the United States of America and Canada as no government banding programs had been in existence at that time. In honour of his conservation work, the week of Jack Miner’s birthday (April 10) has been designated as Canada’s National Wildlife Week.
