    It wasn't technically open while I was there, but I strolled around anyhow, and it's a great place to take your family for a picnic by the lake, go bird watching, walk the trails, enjoy water sports, and visit the Long Point Bird Observatory just a walk away.

    A must-see for birders, but also a great place for families and anyone interested in birds/wildlife. The banders will demonstrate the banding process in the lab for curious visitors. A walk through the lot will introduce you to the method of capturing the birds (mist nets and ground traps), and you'll likely see an extraction or two of birds from the nets. A great opportunity to see some beautiful birds close up. Please be respectful, however, and do not touch any of the birds or nets! Phone to find out when the Migration season is to avoid disappointment.

    Volunteers are always appreciated. Information can be found on their website. It's a fantastic opportunity to gain banding and field experience!

    With a pub-like atmosphere, this restaurant is a place to meet up with friends in after a day's work and chat over a beer and snack. I enjoyed the chicken wings. There are pool tables available in a seperate room as well as a bar. There is also an outdoor patio overlooking the harbour.

    Volunteers at the Long Point Bird Observatory (LPBO) have the special opportunity to see the tip of the Long Point peninsula, where there is another banding station. There is also a third banding station at Breakwater, between the Tip station and the mainland station at Old Cut Blvd. I spent a week out at the tip. It was gorgeous and extremely remote. Our only contact with the mainland was via scheduled radio calls. An unforgettable experience. Even more incentive to volunteer at the LPBO!
