Calendar of Events, Workshops & QUBS Outreach
Many of our Outreach activities, including Eco-Adventure Camp for 10-14 year olds, occur at our Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre. Situated at the end of Hewlett-Packard Road off North Shore Road, the Centre is on the shores of pristine Elbow Lake embedded within 400 hectares of rugged terrain and varied wetlands and forests.
Activities like our Open House, weekly spring and summer seminar series, and many workshops occur at our main research and teaching facility on the shores of Lake Opinicon, directions for which may be found on our Contact Page.

Remembering Turid Forsyth
When: Saturday, Aug. 16 2 p.m. to 5 p.m
Where: Queen’s University Biological Station
QUBS will provide the venue for all those who knew Turid to meet, chat, and reminisce. There will be some words of tribute to honour Turid's memory - all are welcome to participate. Four of Turid's paintings permanently adorn our lodge and we encourage people to bring photos of Turid, and their recollections to share with the group.
QUBS will provide finger foods and drinks (lemonade, coffee, tea).
Please join us for a casual afternoon of remembrance and celebration of Turid's life.
