Ontario Nature’s >25 nature reserves have a lot to offer explorers in southern and eastern Ontario. I’ve crafted the following dichotomous key (a field guide tool that helps identify unknown organisms) to help you decide which of our nature reserves to visit this summer.
We all lead busy lives and it feels like there is never enough time to get outside and enjoy nature. More often than not, I fall into this category. And in the little spare time I have, I am often buried in a list of chores. But over the Thanksgiving long weekend, I decided it was time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall colours. Sunshine, fresh air and a canopy of orange, red and yellow – nature did not disappoint.
