The Pelee Island Bird Observatory’s research station is open to visitors during the migration season (April – early June and August – October). Our operation is weather-dependent and, as we are off the beaten path at Fish Point Provincial Nature Reserve, please contact us by email for directions & hours of operation.
Interpretive and Education Events
We provide hour-long environmental education programs for school groups, naturalist clubs, and anyone else interested in visiting the Bird Observatory. All program bookings include a post-trip activities package and teacher’s guide. To book a program, or to inquire further, please contact PIBO.
Full-day and three-day program visits are designed for elementary and high school students in conjunction with the Pelee Island Heritage Centre. Programs can include sessions on: human, geological, and natural history with the Heritage Centre, importance of organic farming (we can help arrange an organic lunch for your students!), and a trip to the Bird Observatory research station. The programs are flexible and can be altered according to age and special emphasis requested by the teacher. To learn more about full-day or three-day group visits, please contact us or our education partner: Pelee Island Heritage Centre: Contact Kim Gardner, (519) 724-2291
