Jack Miner became the founder of the migratory waterfowl refuge system by creating the Jack Miner Migratory Bird Sanctuary in 1904. It is located on the Miner property in Kingsville, Ontario, Canada. Five years later he pioneered the banding of migrating waterfowl; the recovery data was instrumental in the establishment of the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1916 between the United States of America and Canada as no government banding programs had been in existence at that time.
The Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation was established in 1931 in the United States and in 1936 in Canada to continue the good work of Jack Miner. The Foundation is a charitable organization that operates solely on grants and the generosity of private and corporation donations. The Board of Directors and staff are responsible for the ongoing operations of the Foundation. The Jack Miner Museum houses the Miner Family memorabilia from the late 1800’s when the family’s brick and tile manufacturing plant was in operation. Jack Miner was acquainted with some of the most famous people of his era. See letters and photos from distinguished visitors such as Henry Ford and Ty Cobb. The museum is filled with period photography from some of the most influential photographers of Jack Miner’s generation. Also on display are Jack Miner’s actual lecture clothing and the detailed steps in creating his autobiography, ‘WILD GOOSE JACK’.
Please check the website for hours of operation.
