White Sturgeon
Conservation Centre

The White Sturgeon Conservation Centre is a breeding facility designed to help stock the declining Nechako River sturgeon population. The Nechako white sturgeon is the largest freshwater fish in Canada and has survived millions of years (since the age of the dinosaurs) relatively unchanged. Today, however, the species on the brink of extinction and this new centre has been created to breed hatchlings that will be reintroduced into the Nechako river and also to be used as a public education site on this fish, its habitat and changing environment through tours.

Migratory Bird Sanctuary

The Migratory Bird Sanctuary, located on the Nechako River at Riverside Park, is a major migratory stopping ground for thousands of Canada Geese along with many other species of birds including Trumpeter Swans, Northern Pintails, Caspian Terns, and White Pelicans. A definite stop for avid bird watchers and wildlife photographers. The best time to see the highest diversity of birds would be during migration in the spring or fall. Summer months bring about song birds, water fowl, shore birds, and birds of prey in the sanctuary.

Golfing

Vanderhoof is home to Omineca Golf Course, offering 18 holes with undulating grass greens. The front nine transects the woods and crosses gullies, while the back nine is flat, open and has water features on three fairways. Open from April to October as weather permits. Relax in the lounge of the log club house that overlooks the back nine. The course is available for private tournaments.
