When exploring Bowen’s trails, be sure to tread carefully and keep a watchful eye for wildlife. Listen for woodpeckers and owls in the woods and scan the shorelines for seals, otters, herons, eagles and fish. Blacktail deer wander freely and you may just see – or hear – a beaver in Killarney Creek or Lake. Typically Chum salmon return to spawn in October or November and you may see them from the Causeway. Coho salmon return a bit later but they are nocturnal, so harder to spot.
Only walk on marked trails – it’s crucial to preserving sensitive natural habitats for native species. Animals rely on their surroundings, so please do not remove anything from the beaches or forests.
