What's happening at Rondeau Provincial Park

(News Release)

Although the summer is winding down, we still have some exciting programs for you to mark on your calendars. This Saturday August 31 we are once again hosting the Ontario Falconry Centre.

This is a must-see presentation that we know you will enjoy. Meet at Beach Access #9 at 1:00pm to get a closer look at some of Ontario’s coolest birds! What a great way to spend the last weekend before the kids are back at school.

We are also gearing up for this year’s Monarch Migration Festival which will be held at the Visitor Centre on Sunday September 15th from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

It’s true, it has been a slow year for Monarchs all across North America, but we are starting to see more and more of these brilliant butterflies in the park every day. Come out to enjoy guided butterfly hikes, Monarch tagging demonstrations, an art show and so much more.

If you enjoy long walks on the beach then you may be interested in volunteering for the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup at Rondeau Provincial Park on Saturday September 28th.

This program was created by the Vancouver Aquarium and World Wildlife Fund twenty years ago with a goal to keep our waters clean for the creatures and communities that depend on them. To date, volunteers have removed over 1.1 million kg of litter from Canadian shorelines.

If you are interested in helping to keep Rondeau’s shoreline clean or would like more information on this amazing program contact Sarah here at the Rondeau Visitor Centre at 519-674-1768.
