Long Point Waterfowl’s inaugural Duck Day event was a huge success!

Hunt-Talk

Long Point Waterfowl is committed to waterfowl and wetland research, education and conservation in the Great Lakes region

 

Over 500 people (including over 200 kids) attended our first annual Duck Day which was held at our Research & Education Centre on Sunday 25 September.

 

Visitors to Duck Day received free food and drinks and observed or took part in in many talks, interpretive nature walks, retriever demonstrations and a raptor show.

 

There were several activities for kids, including decoy painting, a scavenger hunt and several interpretive walks and touch tables.

Over 25 vendors/displays, including many of our conservation-partners, attended and participated.

 

Long Point Waterfowl would like to thank all who attended and contributed to making Duck Day such a success.  Long Point Waterfowl plans to host this event annually on the fourth Sunday in September.  Please visit our website (www.longpointwaterfowl.org) or Facebook page for photos from Duck Day.
