MILTON – Do you ever wonder what happens at Crawford Lake Conservation Area at night? While you are cuddled up at home in your pajamas the park sings with the sounds of adventure. After hours Crawford Lake’s peeping frogs and softly hooting owls greet you in the forest, and the longhouses welcome you to gather around the fire.

Before you settle in for the night on Saturday, June 15, why not put on your funkiest pajamas, and join us for Crawford Lake’s Pajama Night for a really cool bedtime story. The program runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is geared toward children and includes: a night creature hike, snack, craft, storytelling in a longhouse and a fireside gathering.

The fee for this event is $15/adult and $10/child (ages 5 to 14 years) or senior (ages 65 years and over), applicable taxes extra. Children ages 4 years and under are free.

About Crawford Lake Conservation Area
Crawford Lake is located at the corner of Guelph Line and Conservation Road (formerly Steeles Avenue) 15 km north of the QEW, and 5 km south of the 401 in Milton. The pristine waters of Crawford Lake have drawn people to its shores for hundreds of years. The rare lake, with surrounding boardwalk, is nestled in lush forests atop the stunning Niagara Escarpment where visitors can watch soaring turkey vultures glide through the Nassagaweya Canyon.

You can step back in time and explore the 15th century Iroquoian Village that has been reconstructed on its original site at Crawford Lake. The spirits still sing in the longhouses where tools, animal hides and the smell of smoke let you experience the rich history of Ontario’s First Peoples. Crawford Lake’s Customer Service staff can be reached by telephone at 905-854-0234, ext. 3200, or by e-mail, crawlake@hrca.on.ca.
