Prices for meals range from $4.00 to $7.00, depending on your appetite! An ATM machine is available on-site.

It’s a natural extravaganza! Directed by the Saugeen Valley Conservation Foundation, the annual event attracts a cast of thousands, so mark your calendars for March 25 and 26th. Curtains rise at 10am and this virtual 3D production will conclude at 4pm both days.
