Seabirds wheel around the new Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre overlooking the estuary. The Centre offers interactive opportunities to learn about the estuary, its watershed, marine life, and natural and cultural history.
Outside there is a viewing platform and spotting scopes. Indoors there is an aquarium and touch tank where you can see intertidal life up close and personal, as well as a computer touch screen that offers an interactive tour of the watershed, a video corner with two minutes interviews with Cowichan elders, biologists, historians and fisherfolk offering rich and diverse perspectives on the estuary, and an array of estuary art including a mural and multimedia eelgrass meadow.
