This short paved loop gives a good introduction to Alberta's oldest federal migratory bird sanctuary, taking you from the Kerry Wood Nature Centre to the bird blind on the West Gaetz Lake and across an area typical of the aspen parkland where the forest and the grassland exist side by side. Along the way keep an eye out for hairy and downy woodpeckers, nuthatch, chickadee, ruffed grouse, red-tailed hawk, waterfowl, beaver, muskrat, Richardson ground squirrel, coyote, deer or even a moose.
