Located in some of B.C.’s best waterfowl breeding habitat east of Dawson Creek, McQueen Slough is a bird lover’s paradise.

During spring and fall migration, test your waterfowl knowledge at McQueen while you watch for dozens of species of birds. Waterfowl inhabitants include Canada geese, trumpeter swans, mallards, wigeon, gadwall, shovelers, scaup, ring-necked ducks, ruddy ducks, bufflehead, barrow’s goldeneye, white winged scoters and three species of teal. Other bird species are regulars here, like grebes, raptors and grouse. Keep your eye on the ground too; you may see some of the slough’s other year-round inhabitants, like muskrats, beavers, mink, deer and foxes.

Our interpretive signs will guide you along the trails and walkways. Come see what we’ve conserved in your community at this DUC project site!
