This congregation of waterfowl is a world-class wildlife spectacle and Waterfowl Weekends is about introducing people to this spectacle.
In mid-March volunteer naturalists are positioned at various viewing hides around the park with telescopes to help people find and identify the up to 25 species of ducks, geese and swans that annually use the Presqu'ile Bay to rest and feed. We also have daily children's activities including a self-guided scavenger hunt and duck-oriented naturalist-led program at the Nature Centre.
During this weekend volunteers with scopes are situated at key areas to help visitors find and identify the different waterfowl species. The Lighthouse Interpretive Centre, open 10 am to 4 pm will be the "inside" focus of activity with 'ducky' displays and children's activities. The Friends' Gift Shop will be open and they will have snacks and warm drinks for sale. Dave Richards, the Bushnell Rep, will also be there to showcase their optical equipment and answer any questions you might have about binoculars and telescopes.
See Calendar of Events for this year's dates.
