Kootenay-Columbia Discovery Centre Society
Over 300 species of birds call this wetland home
A place to learn, explore and enjoy
The Discovery Centre has had an amazing season so far and we would like to thank all our visitors and program participants for their enthusiasm.
The seasonal staff have returned to their University studies. A big thank you to Megan, Spencer, Natasha, Julia and Will for a wonderful season.
We are still open from Tuesday to Saturday, 9am to 4pm until October 6th.
We are currently hosting some school groups for fall programming and welcoming visitors from around the world as well as across the Kootenays, Province and Canada! It is a fun time of year.
Fall (late summer) is a wonderful time to come and explore the wetlands. The migration of birds starts in September and goes well into October. The arrival of a variety of duck species, greater white fronted geese, swans and American white pelicans make for an active and noisy wetland! Waterfowl in the thousands congregate on Duck Lake and on the ponds and channels in the wetland. It is a sight to see!
Come and visit the Discovery Centre for trail maps and information as well as to view our educational displays. We are located in the parking lot of the old Wildlife Centre at 1760 West Creston Road.
See you in the wetland!
