Please note

Pelee Island is accessible by a 1.5-hour public ferry ride out of Leamington. Reservations must be booked in advance either by phone or online – see schedule here: https://www.ontarioferries.com/pelee-island-ferries/schedule-overview/

It would be best if you spent the previous night on the island to be there for the 10 a.m. start, but we will have a second “welcome/start” at 12 p.m. for anyone who can only come for the day.

The ferry is susceptible to delays and cancellations due to weather. Please check the weather and the ferry website or twitter account (@peleeferry) before you leave.

Additional event details, including directions and parking instructions, will be provided after registration. Please look for three emails with event information; one will be sent immediately after registration (scroll to the bottom of the email for the participant package), a reminder will be sent one week, and then one day, before the event. The emails may get filtered into your spam or junk folders. If you do not receive the correspondence with the event details, please contact on.volunteers@natureconservancy.ca.

No previous experience is required. This event will proceed rain or shine, so please dress for the conditions: rubber boots, or shoes you don’t mind getting wet or dirty, long layers of comfortable clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, a hat and a change of dry clothes (just in case).

To allow us to plan for a safe, successful and enjoyable day in the field together, all participants must register in advance of the event. As space is limited and spots fill up fast, register today to confirm your attendance.


Please email on.volunteers@natureconservancy.ca.
