For the first time, the Frontrenac region joins seven other Ontario regions to offer a Passport to Nature, a selection of free outdoor nature events for all ages. The Passport to Nature for Frontenac and Lennox & Addington counties lists more than 30 activities beginning on Saturday, April 27th with a Historical Walk in Frontenac Park. The program runs through the summer and includes fall and winter activities.
Among the many choices of activities are slow-paced walks for parents and children, introductions to birding and forest therapy, opportunities to participate in a BioBlitz, test out binoculars, and help with monitoring tasks on a nature reserve, a wheelchair rally, and, on, July 7th, an after-dark event to see moths.
“We have assembled a wide variety of outdoor events with experienced leaders by partnering with other local conservation organizations. We want to encourage people to join us outdoors,” explains Dr. Caroline Rowlands, a board member with the Land Conservancy for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. “We hope people will pick up a free Passport and find something of interest to them.”
