A squawking, undulating carpet of white fills your view as far as the eye can see. The snow geese have landed to forage and rest in Delta's farm fields before they continue their southward journey. They are but one of hundreds of bird species that make the area an important stop during this annual ritual of nature. You, too, are welcome to make Delta a stop on your journey to Greater Vancouver. It's an easy 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver on Highway 99.
Three distinct communities make up this largely agricultural municipality. Historic Ladner, is an active fishing village where its 19th century homes sit behind the dykes that hold the Fraser River at bay. The charming village core remains intact, complete with many restored heritage buildings. For bird watchers this is paradise found.
North Delta is home to the 10,000 acre Burn's Bog, one of the most important natural wonders in the province. Over 200 species of migratory birds use Burns Bog for resting, staging, and breeding.
Tsawwassen, known for its abundant sunshine, is the departure point for ferries bound for Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. With long, sandy beaches it is perfect for lounging or pushing off and trying your hand at windsurfing in the shallow bays. Several family oriented activities are conveniently located off Highway 17.
