We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made it out to Turtle Day this past Saturday. The weather couldn’t have been nicer and we were thrilled to see so many happy people out supporting our turtle research program in the park. We are pleased to announce that thanks to your generous donations we raised over $500 dollars! These funds will be used to continue species at risk conservation projects in Rondeau. Thank you all so much on behalf of the Friends of Rondeau, Wildlife Preservation, and Rondeau Provincial Park!

Releasing baby turtles on Turtle Day








Although the summer is winding down, we still have some exciting programs for you to mark on your calendars. This Saturday August 31 the Friends of Rondeau are once again sponsoring a preformance by 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 ofOntario’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 any of these amazing programs contact Sarah here at the Rondeau Visitor Centre at 519-674-1768.
