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. Many of our events include the opportunity for participants to rent a cabin and stay overnight.
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!
July 10th, 2022- Family Fishing Day
Want to learn how to fish? Join us for a day of family fishing fun. Spend time on the dock, learning from fish biologists about fishing techniques and the importance of catch and release. Don't have a rod... no problem! Use one of ours. Fun for the whole family. There are many prizes to be won.
At ELEEC, we only allow catch and release fishing using barbless hooks and no live bait.
