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 9 (Friday)- A Night Under the Stars
