Have a howling good time at this Saturday’s Crawford Lake Pajama Night

Posted by on

 

What does the night sound like? Owls, creaking branches and howling coyotes entertain the forest far after you have settled in for the night! This Saturday, September 6, Crawford Lake invites you to cuddle up in your coziest pajamas, and join us for a chorus of night sounds at our Coyote Howl Pajama Night.

The Coyote Howl Pajama Night at Crawford Lake Conservation Area includes a guided hike, longhouse exploration, craft, snack, and storytelling around a fire. Staff will guide you through the starlit forest on a search for night creatures and attempt to call for the resident coyotes.

After the hike, children can create a craft as a memory of their hike and then explore a reconstructed 15th century Iroquoian longhouse in the village. Finally, to conclude your evening, you can relax by a fire and listen to a legend as you enjoy a gooey s’more!

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 Highway 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.
