Presqu’ile Waterfowl Viewing Weekend

March 25-26/2017

10am to 4pm

Presqu’ile will be hosting their 41st 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, at least normally.  This very mild weather has opened the ice up early and ducks may be well scattered come the weekend.  BUT any visit to Presqu’ile is a good one with something to see and on this weekend in addition to returning birds we will have lots of activities and displays to take in.  The Nature Centre and Lighthouse Centre, featuring “ducky” displays, artists, Bird Studies Canada rep, Bushnell scope raffle, 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.
