Festival of Birds – May 1 to 20, 2019

Hike registration opens December 1, 2018

Point Pelee is part of a peninsula, located at the crossroads of two major migration routes, extending into the western basin of Lake Erie. It is one of the first points of land spring migration reach in the pre-dawn hours when crossing Lake Erie at night.

By the end of April, the first wave of songbirds arrives. The best time to see the greatest diversity of songbirds is the first three week sof May. Forty-two (42) of the 55 regularly occurring warbler species in North America have been recorded at Point Pelee.

The Friends of Point Pelee is a co-operating association formed to support research, education and ecological integrity preservation in and around Point Pelee National Park. The Friends operate a number of visitor services inside the park, such as the Nature Nook Gift Store (located in the Visitor Centre), visitor services and canoe rentals (at the Marsh Boardwalk) and shuttle to the Tip.
Proceeds from sales and services support our operations as well as Point Pelee National Park initiatives.
