Sounds of Nature

Island Lake Conservation Area is home a number of animal species. If you listen to everything that’s happening around you, you may hear the banjo like “twang” of a green frog or the melodic “oak-a-lee” call of the red-winged blackbird. 

Here are some of the sound you may hear at Island Lake Conservation Area, from the resident wildlife:
