Winter Activities

During the winter, the Hullett Provincial Wildlife Area is transformed. The birds have migrated and some of the animals are hibernating. It is an excellent time to ski or snowshoe and find new and interesting things that are difficult to see during other times of the year.

​​​​​​​Bird nests are more visible in the winter as trees have bare branches. It takes skill to identify a bird nest. Once winter nests have been located, birders are able to return to the area during the breeding season with hopes to see the species who call the nest home. Winter is also a great time to look for animal tracks. Birds, chipmunks, rabbits, deer, foxes and coyotes are still very active in the winter, and the snow is a great way to find travel corridors and home territories of many animals (especially deer).

Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the property and the 12km of nature trails and the 20km of dyke tops. Friends of Hullett would like to remind the public about ice safety. Due to the nature of marshes and springs, ice conditions at Hullett are often poor. Make sure you have the appropriate training before venturing onto the ice. Snowmobile trails cross the property as well and should be avoided by hikers and skiers.
