The Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre is the result of an agreement between the Queen’s University Biological Station (QUBS) and the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). QUBS is one of the pre-eminent biological field stations in Canada known for research excellence and quality undergraduate learning experiences in field biology and other fields. NCC is Canada’s leading national land conservation organization that partners with corporate and landowners secure properties for conservation of biodiversity in perpetuity. The Education Centre was created in June 2011 to serve as a major site for environmental outreach and education.
The Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre can host a range of activities including school field trips, field courses, club meetings, individual or group retreats, and small conferences.
The pavilion can accommodate 30 - 40 people comfortably for presentations (should you require a data projector please advise us in advance).
With 11 cabins and a recommended maximum occupancy of 3-4 per cabin with 2 bedrooms, the site can comfortably house 30 to 40 people (although we do have four camp sites for overflow should that be desired).
There is no permanent cook, although we would be pleased to work with you to have an event catered by local businesses. The kitchen has three stove tops and lots of counter space for you to prepare your own meals. Cabins do not have water service but each have a small fridge and countertop.
