Friends of MacGregor Point Park

Town: Port Elgin

Ontario Nature Region: Great Lakes West

The Friends of MacGregor Point Park is dedicated to creating awareness of the cultural and natural integrity of MacGregor Point Provincial Park.

This community based group is a registered, non-profit, charitable organization. Since 1993, it has played a vital role in promoting, supporting and enhancing a greater understanding and appreciation of the unique natural values of MacGregor Point Provincial Park. This 1,366 hectare natural environment park is a perfect fit for a cooperating association. Within the park, the protection of provincially significant wetlands and Lake Huron shoreline habitats is balanced with campgrounds, trails and an active naturalists program.

In order to enhance the public’s understanding of the natural and historical resources of the park, the Friends fund raising efforts support interpretive and educational programming and scientific research. The activities listed below help us reach our goal of expanding and broadening the park’s message of enjoying nature and the outdoors.

  • Funding of student staff, projects, and special events to promote the Park and its resources and facilities. These events include: Snowfest, a Nature Study Series in the Spring and Fall, the Annual Huron Fringe Birding Festival, the North American Butterfly Association MacGregor Point Count, Parks Day, ”Meet A Friend At Summer’s End” Chicken BBQ and “Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up”, and “Words In The Wild”.
  • Sale of park related gift or souvenir items through the Huron Fringe Gift Shop.
  • Increasing awareness of the Friends to help facilitate acquiring funds through corporate and private donations, and memberships.
