Fincastle Reservoir (F4-3)
Fincastle Reservoir introduces visitors to a different kind of neighbourhood—great blue heron style. A rookery is located on a nearby island, home to generations of herons who have come, built nests and reared their young. The human-made nesting structure, built by ACA staff in 2000, holds some 12 heron nests and replaces the since-deteriorated poplar tree that was the population’s former home. Bring your binoculars and observe the peculiar feeding and nesting habits of these great birds. Be respectful and keep your distance. Pack your fishing rod and try landing a walleye, northern pike or yellow perch. This 33-acre site is located approximately 10 km east of Taber. From Taber, travel east on Highway 3 for 9 km and then turn north and travel 0.5 km.
