The Serpentine Wildlife Management Area – better known as the Serpentine Fen – is in a triangle between Highway 99, the King George Highway (99A) and the Serpentine River. The nature trail around the Serpentine Fen Nature Reserve is around 3.5 kilometres long. Allow 1.5 hours for this walk.
The Fen contains many different habitats in its 150 hectares. It is also home to 130 different bird species. September and October are the busiest months for spotting birds at the Fen. In the winter months, many birds take shelter where there is open water and a good, natural food supply.
The Serpentine Wildlife Management Area is managed by Ducks Unlimited.
