O'Mahony Conservation Area
Open year round - trails periodically groomed for cross-country skiing in the winter.
Winagami Conservation area was designed and developed by the O'Manhony family with the help of G.P. Vanier school and community members. This area intended to preserve and protect birds, wild life, and all vegetation, as well as to encourage an appreciation of our natural heritage. A central entrance is located 9.2 km south of the McLennan Birdwalk on highway #2.
Located within three major migratory flyways, the spring and fall migrations bring large volumes of birds to this area. Swans, cranes, white fronted geese, and canada geese predominate the flocks of larger water birds.
Over 96 bird species have been identified. A listing of these birds, and indentified manmals, along with a trail map is available at the McLennan Birdwalk Centre.
This conservation area is ideally suited for outdoor education. Birdwatchers and various interest groups can use the self guided interpretive trails. No machines, bicycles, pets, horses hunting or fires are permitted. Individuals are asked to take out what they take in.
The trails, which are natural tread surface are maintained frequently, but not necessarily daily. All visitors are therefore using the trails at their own risk.
