The 41st Presqu’ile Waterfowl weekend, which shows off multiple species of migrating waterfowl, gets underway on Saturday and runs through Sunday.
Park Naturalist David Bree says the big advantage to coming to the park during this weekend is that members of the public has access to spotting telescopes, and knowledgeable volunteers, to help them find and identify the species of waterfowl.
There are some added attractions people can take advantage of at the Lighthouse Centre and Nature Centre, which will feature children’s activities, crafts, and duck displays.
The Friends of Sandbanks group will host a fund-raising BBQ where lunch, hot drinks and snacks can be purchased from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bree says the only cost involved is a $10 vehicle park entrance fee. Seasonal and annual park passes are also honoured for entry.
Proceeds from this weekend will go towards The Friends’ projects in the Park.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each of the two days.
