Want to experience first hand what we do at IISD Experimental Lakes Area?

IMG_0793We are pleased to offer an annual open house for Kenora and Dryden residents and are open for group tours during the active research season (May to October). Tours can be adapted for a variety of audiences and are aimed at informing the public about this world-class facility and providing the chance to learn more about our research.

Tours include educational and interactive stops at research and monitoring lakes, a visit to the meteorological station, as well as hands-on action in the labs. Guests are able to learn about capturing fish using a seine net, how to calculate stream flow and how we monitor air temperature and precipitation, among many other exciting activities throughout the fun-filled day. Tour participants are required to bring a lunch and appropriate clothing for the season.

Look for us at the Kenora and Dryden home shows to learn more about our annual open house or contact Pauline Gerrard, IISD-ELA Deputy Director, at to book a tour.
