Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary
Founded in 1904, the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary, located in Kingsville just north of Leamington, is a premier attraction in southern Ontario. Years after starting the sanctuary, he successfully tagged migrating waterfowl. The resulting data was a fundamental component of the Migratory Bird Treat of 1916 between Canada and the United States.
After Miner's 1944 death, he was honored for his pioneer work in the conservation of wildlife. In 1947, "National Wildlife Week" favorably passed in the House of Commons, to honor Miner during the week of his birthday. In 2010, Jack Miner became an inductee in the "Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame."
