The trails are open for self-guided bird viewing during our normal hours of operation. Due to the abundance of natural wildlife at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung, ranging from curious rodents to large and territorial animals, we ask that you remain on the trails at all times. Please be respectful, and remember that this is a sacred resting place.

June is the peak month for bird migration and nesting behaviour at our site, and the highest variety of species is expected to be seen at this time.
