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!


July 7 (Sunday)- Family Fishing Day

Hosted By ELEEC

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. 

Come to Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre on Sunday, July 7th from 9am-3pm to take part. Make a day of it and purchase something from our barbeque. Want to stay the weekend? Book your family/group into a cabin (special rate $65/cabin) and stay the night before.  Drop-ins are welcome, but overnight guests must book accommodation in advance, as space is limited. Click Here to rent one of our cabins.
