Dark Sky Night
December 17
7:30 p.m. to midnight

With the first official day of Winter on the doorstep, sunset comes early and the nights are long. The dark night sky is now a sight to behold with Orion, Taurus, and all the other constellations of the cold weather season making their debut. Members from The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada – Windsor Centre will be on hand in the Visitor Centre parking area until midnight for a guided tour of some of the many, lovely star clusters visible at this time of year; along with the sight of the moon, only three days past full, rising dramatically in the east.

Point Pelee National Park Annual Christmas Bird Count
December 19 (please register by December 14)
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (dinner to follow).

Volunteers will spend the entire day in the field, looking for birds, learning about the habitats they use in winter and join with others for some fun along the way. No experience is necessary, but participants will be expected to spend most of the day outside. At the end of the day, participants will gather at the Visitor Centre for a chili dinner, hosted by the Friends of Point Pelee, and we’ll compile the results of the day’s effort.

*Participants must register by Wednesday, December 14, 2016. Call 519-322-2365 ext 0 or email us at to register or for more information.
