Events Open to the Public
We offer workshops for adults and families, some of which run at Elbow Lake and others at the main site of the Queen's University Biological Station on Opinicon Lake. Check back frequently, as workshop scheduling is ongoing and details are added regularly.
The Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre offers an intimate gathering space in a spectacular natural setting. Whether used for educational or environmental programming, amenities such as overnight accommodation, pedestrian trails, waterfront and a shared kitchen space come together to make this unique facility the ideal space for any workshop or community event. We are always looking for new partners and programming ideas, and would love to hear from you!
August 17 (Thursday) - The Legends of the Stars
Hercules, Draco, Leo, Aquarius … sound familiar? Learn about the origin of these incredible constellations and learn how to find them in the sky!
Meet at 7:30 pm in the Pavilion for this free event, or book your family/group into a cabin (special rate $65/cabin) and stay overnight. Drop-ins are welcome, but overnight guests must book accommodation in advance. This event will run rain or "shine"... let's hope for the latter! Bring your binoculars.
