To close out each summer, Park staff pool their theatrical talents and dig into our archives to reenact characters and scenes from our colourful past.

You'll hear the voices of the voyageurs and surveyors, lumberjacks and pioneers, settlers and Park staff who helped shape the history of the Little Bonnechere.

Bring your lawn chair; dress for the weather.

Wolf Howl
Mike Runtz Shouts Out 
Saturday, August 27
7:00 pm   

Join author and naturalist  Mike Runtz at the Davenport Centre for an informative multimedia presentation featuring wolves, their habits and habitat.

Then head out to the long-abandoned logging settlement at Basin Depot, in neighbouring Algonquin Park.

Along the way Mike will invite you all to send a call out to the night. If we're VERY lucky, the wolves will return our calls with a chorus of yelps and howls. It promises to be an unforgettable, bone-chilling experience!


Dress for the weather; plan to carpool.
