We stayed on the hiking trails as requested and everybody else did so and kept looking for flying squirrels, but did not see a single one. Probably I would have identified it as a bat.
We always studied the posted information. They are a great source for information.
Stop only at the marked parking lots. Rent a bike if you do not want to walk so much. You are much faster and can cover a larger area of the park.
You also can participate in guided tours. They are in English and eventually also in French. Check for details when you are there or visit the official web site. (We do not provide any longer links because we never have been informed when the Internet address was changed)
An additional fee is charged for these tours. Certainly to recommend if you are more interested in education than just sightseeing or relaxing.
We joined very often such guided tours - in Germany as well as in Canada. If you came from far away, you should do that too. Many things which you normally would oversee are pointed out and in addition you will learn new things.
Explore the peninsula
The "Marsh Boardwalk" should be an essential part of your visit of Point Pelee.
Climb the tower if it is open to the public.
It was always blocked when we came - no my walking got so bad that I volunteer not to climb up!
We did the boardwalk already two times and became animated to rent a canoe or a kayak the next time.
We will take our camera equipment with us and hope that we can take more pictures or even a video of animals which are living in this protected area.
I recommend that you have some basic knowledge how to use these boats.
During our first visit a Chinese couple became embarrassed when everybody was watching them when they tried to move the boat forward and it was continuously circling.
The "Marsh Boardwalk" starts here
Even handicapped people in wheelchair can enjoy the "Marsh Boardwalk". However, they should be accompanied.
Check for turtles
You can rent canoes or kayaks here
There were few visitors on the boardwalk and despite the fact that is was very quiet certain creatures were hiding and I had problems seeing them.
Elizabeth always checked the print outs with all the information
You can see she really enjoyed the trip
A little companion joined us for a while.
The marsh with the water lilies and the reed is really a small paradise for many animals. The last time we could not see any water turtles, but they should be there.
We also did not see or hear any bullfrogs. Parks Canada is trying to give them a home here in Point Pelee. They were already successful with bringing back flying squirrels. Maybe you have more luck. Please send us pictures if you are successful.
The "Wye Marsh and Wildlife Centre" in Midland is working on similar rescue programs.
We were very pleased to see all the efforts to teach children how to take care of the environment. Hopefully these kids can give some of their knowledge back to their parents. Sometimes I am really ashamed about the littering in our cities and on the roads.
Elizabeth fished some plastic garbage from the marsh during our last visit and deposited it properly.
