The Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary is one of the main stops along their journey where they feed and rest. The Sanctuary is located within the Last Mountain Regional Park (10km outside of Govan, SK). Each student will get to observe and participate in bird banding with the sanctuary specialists (including the catch and release methods used and learn about multiple species).
