33rd Annual Presqu?ile Waterfowl Festival
?This is truly a world-class birding spectacle,? says Park Naturalist David Bree. ?While these birds are present in numbers at various places along the Lake Ontario shoreline, Presqu?ile has some of the greatest concentrations, and has easy access to good viewing locations?.
Bree goes on to say. ?The big advantage to coming to the park during the festival is you have access to spotting scopes to look through and knowledgeable volunteers to help you find and identify the many species present. And of course we have some added attractions people can take advantage of at the Lighthouse Centre, including children?s activities, the Friend?s Gift Shop with hot drinks, snacks, and gifts. The Lighthouse Centre also has indoor washroom facilities, which are important in the cold weather!?
?Bushnell has been very generous again this year and provided the Friends with optical equipment for our spring raffle.? says Friends? Chairman, Ernie Payette.
The Friends invite everyone out to share in this event. It makes a great outing for those that appreciate nature; families and individuals alike. The only cost involved is a $9.00/vehicle park entrance fee. We hope to see you there.
