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.
Run from July 4th to August 26th, the camp for young people aged 10-14 focuses on exploring nature and the environment, as well as outdoor activities like hiking and canoeing. It is held at our Elbow Lake Environmental Education facility. For more information visit the Eco-Adventure web site.
Held in the Conference Room in the R.J. Robertson Biodiversity Centre each Wednesday at 7:00 pm. All are welcome! We are just beginning to assemble the roster so please check back.
