Wildlife Detectives
Wildlife Detectives 10:00am - 11:30am

Wildlife Detectives: December 29, January 28, February 20 @10:00am

Winter is a great time to become a wildlife detective. We might not always see all of the animals at Presqu'ile but they leave us clues to help us figure out just who might be living in the park.

Join a park naturalist and use your detective skills to explore the tracks and signs the animals at Presqu’ile leave behind. This program is geared toward children and families, but anyone is welcome to attend.

We meet at the Trail Parking Lot (Entrance of the Group Camp Area)

Please remember a vehicle permit is required for entry into the park all year long.
If you have an annual permit, please ensure it is on display.

You can purchase your daily vehicle permit online at https://reservations.ontarioparks.com/
