WHY LONG POINT?

#1 – A Birding Mecca!

Long Point Peninsula attracts thousands of songbirds each spring fall and receives the some of the highest waterfowl & bird migration use of any area on the Great Lakes. Beginning in April through to June and August through to December Long Point Peninsula is loaded with songbirds, shorebirds & waterfowl. On any given day the skies can be black birds; a spectacle you really must see.

#2 – A Short Drive Away!

Experience world-class birding on the tip of Long Point Ontario. Situated less than 2 hours south west of Toronto & 1.5 hours south east of London; Long Point is known by many as a birding mecca!

#3 – World Biosphere Reserve!

In 1982, Long Point National Wildlife Area was recognized as a wetland of international significance under the Ramsar Convention. It was designated as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986 and is a protected landscape.
