Bird Workshops at OPG’s St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre – February 5, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – What happens to birds in the winter?  How far do migrating birds travel, and how do birds adapt in order to stay here during the cold season?  Plan to visit the OPG St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre on Saturday, February 5 for a family-oriented workshop to learn about Winter Birds.  Bring the kids, check out the OPG displays, and take part in hands-on activities.

Workshops will take place at 12 noon and 2pm in French, and 1 pm and 3 pm in English.
“In this program, participants will see a variety of birds, including preserved specimens and live birds outside”,  states Elizabeth Boileau, River Institute educator, “they will learn how to identify local species and learn interesting facts about their behaviour.”

The OPG Visitor Centre also offers displays and interactive exhibits that describe the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project construction story and its effects on the nearby communities. Visitors can learn and observe how OPG safely generates electricity at its nuclear, thermal and hydro generating stations located across Ontario. Visit for details, or call 613-932-4563 ext. 3523.

Science workshops are presented every month at the Visitor Centre by educators from the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences. Programs are free of charge, and appropriate for all ages.  Sign up for one of the sessions upon arrival at the Visitor Centre, 2500B Second St. West.  For more information, visit
