Every third Sunday in September for the past 3 years, Long Point Waterfowl has hosted a free community event coined “Duck Day”. Duck Day is a fun filled event where both adults and children can come out to learn about local conservation organizations, hunting and angling in the Long Point region, watch raptor and retriever demonstrations, participate in nature hikes and much much more. Make sure to mark this years event on your calendar for September 21, 2014 as it always proves to be a great day out with the family!

After the creation of a Waterfowl Heritage Day throughout Ontario in 2012, Long Point Waterfowl and The Long Point Waterfowlers’ Association have sponsored a Heritage Hunt at Long Point in September for the past 3 years. The purpose of the event is to allow young hunters and apprentices between the ages of 12-17 a chance to get out hunting with experienced individuals in a safe setting.
This year the Heritage Hunt will be hosted on Saturday, September 20th and includes a BBQ dinner for the youth and their mentors Friday, overnight accommodation, a presentation about Long Point Waterfowl’s research and hunting programs, instructions on firearm safety and rules and regulations, a demonstration on goose calling and decoy placement, and of course a mentored hunt within the Long Point Waterfowl Management Unit.
