Spring Interpretive Program

Our spring interpretive program is centred around two of our birding weekend events and on guided hikes on select weekends in June.  See the Special Events section to the right for more information about our Waterfowl Festival, held in mid-March, and our Warblers and Whimbrels weekend held on the May long weekend.

June is an under-utilized time of the year at Presqu'ile but if you are interested in nature it's a great time to be at the park.  Most of our summer resident birds are on territory and singing their hearts out to let us know they are here.  Vegetation is lush and insect diversity, particularly dragonflies, is at a peak.
