2020-03-17: The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and actions may change as the situation evolves. Here is a link to COVID-19 resources at Queen's: https://www.queensu.ca/covidinfo/

Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega, Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.

Family Fishing at Elbow Lake

Sunday, February 18th, 2018 - 1:00 PM
Sunday, February 18th, 2018 - 4:00 PM

Join us at Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre for an afternoon of ice fishing. Learn from fish biologists about what lurks beneath the ice and tips and tricks for success. Bring your own equipment or borrow one of our rods. When you’re done fishing, warm up by the fire with a hot cocoa. The rods and ice auger at Elbow Lake were funded by the Community Foundation of Kingston & Area.

Come for the afternoon or stay the night in one of our heated cabins (special rate $75/cabin). Please note that Elbow Lake only allows the use of barbless hooks and no live bait.

For inquiries, please contact Emily Verhoek. emily.verhoek@queensu.ca or (613)464-9559
