This congregation of waterfowl is a world-class wildlife spectacle and Waterfowl Weekends is about introducing people to this spectacle.
During this mid-March weekend activities run from 10am to 4pm. There will be volunteers with scopes situated at key areas to help visitors find and identify up to 25 species of ducks, geese and swans that annually use the Presqu’ile Bay to rest and feed. The Nature Centre will be open with ducky displays and children’s activities, including crafts and a self-guided scavenger hunt. This centre also features local artists, taxidermists, carvers and photographers on-site to discuss their work. The Lighthouse Interpretive Centre will also be open, with its art gallery open and artists on-site. The Friends’ of Presqu’ile will be present at this centre with warm drinks and snacks for sale and their Gift Shop will be open. In addition the Friends will run a fund-raising BBQ from 11am to 1pm with burgers, hot dogs and drinks for sale.
