how to walk quietly
ts’ekw’unshun kws qututhun

Attend to nature. Listen. Walk with gentle footsteps. Commune with your more-than-human kin.
Stay on the dike trail. The marsh habitat is delicate, and it is for birds who hunt and nest here.
Keep your dog on a leash. Dogs disturb the birds and their nests.
Stay far away from the birds. Take photos from the dike trail.
No drones. The airspace is birds and flying creatures.

Please walk quietly in this important place for birds—Roberts Bank is an integral part of the Pacific Flyway, and a vital part of the Key Biodiversity Area that is the Fraser River Estuary. The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network has designated the Estuary as one of 22 sites of critical hemispheric importance for migratory birds.

There are many species-at-risk who live in Roberts Bank and stop here on their migratory routes. Please protect their habitat and take care near them.

Birds nest in the grasses and on the ground in the marsh and along the trail. These included Towhees, Marsh Wrens, Killdeer, Northern Harriers, and Red-winged Blackbirds.
