Howls and Smore Pajama Night this Saturday at Crawford Lake

Posted by on

The Howls and Smore-Pajama Night includes a guided hike, longhouse exploration, craft, snack and storytelling. Crawford Lake’s knowledgeable 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 journey to the Iroquoian village to explore a reconstructed 15th century longhouse. Finally, to conclude your evening, you can relax by a fire and listen to a legend as you enjoy a gooey smore!

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.
