Presqu’ile Waterfowl Viewing Weekend—March 14-15

March 14-15, 2015

10am to 4pm.

Presqu’ile will be hosting their 39th Waterfowl Viewing Weekend, where nature enthusiasts can come and appreciate one of the great natural spectacles on earth – the return of migrating waterfowl to their staging areas along the lower Great Lakes. Presqu’ile is well situated to experience this phenomenon with close viewing and a good variety of species. Seeing 20 different species of waterfowl in a day is not unusual and 25+ species are usually tallied during the season. During the viewing weekend, volunteers with scopes are situated at key areas to help visitors find and ID the different species. The Nature Centre and Lighthouse Centre, featuring “ducky” displays and children’s activities are open 10am to 4pm. The Friends of Presqu’ile will also be there with a BBQ starting at 11am, and the Gift Store will be open.

There is a park admission fee of $10.00/vehicle.

If you want to come learn about ducks this is a great opportunity. If you are interested in coming out and helping with duck ID or in the Nature Centre, I would be more than happy to hear from you. For more information on the event or on volunteering please contact David Bree at 613 475-4324 ext. 225 or david.bree@ontario.ca.
