Bird and Wildlife Viewing

In the wild or out your window, the creatures of the Mighty Peace Region are never far from view

Newcomers to the Mighty Peace Region are often amazed to see deer, bears, and other animals wandering through their garden—or down Main Street. When you live surrounded by wilderness, it’s nice to meet the neighbours. Throughout the year, but especially during our long summer days, birders and other wildlife watchers will have plenty to keep an eye on.
