Celebrating Ploverpalozza at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park

10 Years of Piping Plovers

We are excited to announce the 10th anniversary of Piping Plovers at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park. Our summer-long festival, entitled Ploverpalozza, is a notable event as it celebrates our program's success at protecting this tiny, endangered shorebird.  Our festival thus aims to not only celebrate our success but to bring awareness to each and every patron who visits our park during the summer of 2017.  Since spearheading the Piping Plover Recovery Program at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, Ontario Parks along with the Friends of Nancy Island Historic Site has been instrumental in protecting Piping Plovers during the critical nesting period. After ten years, we are pleased to announce that over 52 chicks have fledged from our site.

Events include a delicious banquet gala dinner, onsite school programs, a four-part speaker series, art workshops, and children's activities.  We are excited for the opportunity to team up with the Town of Wasaga Beach to participate in their Waterfront Festival in Beach Area One (June 17-18).  With the exception of the banquet dinner, the events are FREE to the public thanks to our generous sponsors.
