There Are Two Outstanding Locations for Birdwatching in Schomberg.

The Dufferin Marsh is a 5 ha natural area located in the centre of the Village of Schomberg steps from the downtown Main Street.  It is a remnant feature of the Schomberg River isolated when the river was channelized in the 1800’s.   Through natural processes and man-made influences the old river bed developed into a wetland.  The land was historically used for farming and was bisected by the Schomberg and Aurora Railway in 1902.  Through the years the Marsh has flourished despite adjacent development.  Visit the Dufferin Marsh Nature Connection.

The Trisan Centre is the local community centre, and on its east side is a large pond that is the home to swans and attracts many migratory birds.

 

Dufferin March is located on the south side of Dr. Kay Drive, just west of Highway 27.

The pond is located on the east side of the community centre.  There is a platform for viewing.
