Saunders Hydro Dam Visitor Centre

Join Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the River Institute (RI) to explore a wonderful watery world at the Saunders Hydro Dam Visitor Centre.

Scientists from the River Institute will show you how to identify and age a variety of fish, explain the impacts of invasive species, and host a live dissection to learn all about fish anatomy! You can also learn about American Eel from OPG’s John Sanna. The River Institute staff will even teach you how to build your own microscope and look at tiny creatures that live in the St. Lawrence River.

There are two sessions available, from 10am – 11:30 am and 12pm to 1:30 pm.

This is a family-friendly event recommended for all ages.

Admission is free but you must register your spot in advance! Click here to register.
