- MacGregor Point is one of the most ecologically diverse natural places along the Lake Huron shoreline. A complex ecosystem unfolds at this all-season park on a seven-kilometre stretch of coast, just south of Port Elgin.
- Park interpreters offer a full summer program of activities, including guided walks by the shore and through silver maple swamps, cattail marshes, ponds, fens and bogs that reveal unusual inhabitants.
- Learn about the carnivorous (meat-eating) plants that make this area their home. Rare Dwarf Lake Iris and the elusive Spotted Turtle appear in the spring.
- MacGregor Point is a well-known spot to look for migrating birds, including the Black-crowned Night Heron and the American Egret.
- Home of the very popular spring Huron Fringe Birding Festival and Wild for the Arts fall arts festival.
