East Hays (F4-12)

Site Details

This 144-acre site is approximately 10 km E of Hays and is adjacent to a large area of Crown lease land along the Bow River. This site has been undergoing a transformation over the past few years with the addition of 11,000 shrubs and 13 acres of wetland complexes to enhance the habitat, particularly winter cover, to benefit upland birds such as pheasant and partridge. The remaining tame grasslands are also actively managed to maintain quality nesting and brood habitat. Other wildlife in the area includes white-tailed and mule deer and waterfowl.


Day use only. No open fires. Foot access only.
