November usually brings our first snows and the opportunity for some great outdoor adventures.
The early sunset and later sunrise provides us with almost 15 hours of darkness in which to observe nighttime splendors.
Here are our astronomical highlights: https://t.co/vMHUboYk5hhttps://t.co/bmnJe96ndP
Rondeau had snow flurries today! It won’t be long before we hear the crunch under our feet as we explore Rondeau’s winter wonderland!

Thank you to our amazing maintenance team for clearing the trails after the heavy winds of the weekend! 🥾👷💪🍂👍
Winter is here with the arrival of Snowy Owls! Actually these usually show up here at the end of October and this one has been around for about 10 days but it seems cold and wintery today. Seen here on Gull Island. It will probably stay all winter eating ducks. https://t.co/FKKpkRzrlw
Did you know that all of the trail heads in Pinery have boot brushes? By brushing your boots before and after each hike you can help us stop the spread of invasive species! #TakeAHikeDayhttps://t.co/tKJwCv4aKh
While we love beaches for recreation, we need to remember that they are valuable and delicate ecosystems too! 🏖 🐦 🐸 🕷 🌱
Right now, many migratory birds are making use of Rondeau’s beaches as a last resting place before leaving Canada on their journey south! 🧭
If you visit us every year you may have noticed some changes to the beach each summer.
However, if you spend some time on the beach in the fall you may be lucky enough to watch the shoreline change before your eyes.

Right now Wood Frogs are getting ready for hibernation. They are part of a small group of animals that can freeze but not die!
Over winter their heartbeat & breathing stop, and up to 65% of the water inside them freezes! In the spring they thaw & are active again!🥶🐸
