March Break Events at Rondeau!

WINGS OF SPRING

Just because the temperatures have dropped, and *a little* snow has fallen, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some time outside with the birds! Many of our feathered friends stick around for the winter time – and so, our March Break schedule of events is geared towards celebrating those early spring migrants and our winter residents!
Join us from March 12 – 20, 2016 for daily programs including Owl Prowls, Owl Pellet Dissections, guided hikes to learn about Winter Adaptations, and Waterfowl Watching sessions to learn about identifying our spring waterfowl in Rondeau Bay!
If you would like more information, or to register for the Owl Prowl on March 19th, please call us at 519-674-1768 or email us at Rondeau.NHE@ontario.ca.
