The Friends of Frontenac Park would like to welcome you to this site about beautiful Frontenac Provincial Park. The Park was created in 1974 and occupies 5,214 hectares within Frontenac County in south-eastern Ontario. The central concept of the Park is called "Threshold to Wilderness." As such, its main objective is to teach wilderness skills in a semi-wilderness settings. Check out the Skills Training Program schedule. But Frontenac Park is much more than that: it is a wonderful place to backpack, hike, canoe, camp and observe nature.

Christmas Bird Count

Saturday, December 17 is Frontenac Christmas Bird Count Day
We invite all outdoor and nature enthusiasts to celebrate Christmas by observing and counting birds in the 45,000 ha “Frontenac” Christmas Bird Count (CBC) circle. No experience or birding skills necessary to take part in the largest Citizen Science project worldwide!
This circle has a vast acreage of protected areas to cover – all trail loops in Frontenac Provincial Park are within the survey area – so get out your hiking boots, snowshoes and/or skis and help us collect valuable data on winter birds in the park.
Each census team needs at least one person who is familiar with the park's trails, and one person who is confident in identifying our most common winter birds.
Contact the Frontenac CBC Coordinators ( if you are able to take the lead on one (or both!) of those roles.
Presented by the Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre and The Friends of Frontenac Park.

For more information please see invitation and details from the coordinators and last year's report.
