A Brief History of the Sanctuary
The Last Mountain Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary is located north-west of Regina, Saskatchewan. It is only 68 km. from Manitou Beach, or around a 49-minute drive via SK-2 and SK-15E.
The bird sanctuary is the first of its kind established in North America. It is located within the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area and covers 4,736 hectares of the northern sector of this vast lake and parts of the surrounding land. On June 8, 1887, some 2,500 acres adjacent to the shoreline at the lake’s north end were reserved from sale and settlement as breeding grounds for wildfowl. In 1917, under the “Migratory Birds Convention Act,” the Last Mountain Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary was officially established. Today, Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary is considered as one of the National Historic Sites of Canada.
What You Can Visit
There is something for everyone at the Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary. Families can take a driving tour with interpretative stops, explore walking trails, or observe the extensive wetlands and migratory birds from an observation tower. There are also opportunities for fishing, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bird-watching, and wildlife photography, though in some limited capacity due to physical distancing and other health precautions.
There are public facilities in the sanctuary, such as a self-service information kiosk, washrooms, floating docks, bird blinds, parking lot, and observation tower.
