Hunting Heritage & Conservation Center
Delta Waterfowl has established a Hunting Heritage & Conservation Center near Long Point, Ontario. The five main buildings located on the 40-acre property provide seasonal and year-round accommodation and office space for Delta Waterfowl staff, students, technicians and volunteers.
The Long Point area is home to many local and regional conservation, education and research-based organizations. Based on the area’s importance to waterfowl and many other conservation interests, as well as a lack of hotels and conference centers in the region, Delta Waterfowl is pleased to invite other individuals and organizations to use the facility.
Groups that have recently used the facility include Ducks Unlimited, Norfolk County, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, the Simcoe Scouts and various universities and colleges. The facility is also regularly used for educational field trips and by students and scientists working on various projects.
Rental fees, private donations and grants will continue to be used to operate and make upgrades to the Center.
The Center is a modern, well-equipped facility perfectly suited to host educational programs, professional seminars, business meetings, research work, family reunions and weddings.
