The Friends of Beaubears Island remain vigilant during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Interpretive Centre closes for the 2020 Season on September 26. In compliance with existing guidelines, and wishing the safety of both our staff and our guests, all of our autumn and winter programming and events will continue to be offered to one ‘bubble’ at a time.
