Overview

From Hudson Bay to Pelee Island, from Rainy River to the Quebec border, Ontario offers a rich variety of experiences for nature-lovers of all ages and interests. A Nature Guide to Ontario showcases more than six hundred of the best sites for viewing the many forms of plant and animal life found across the province. All sites are open to the general public, most are easily accessible, and a surprising number are located in or near the province's biggest cities.

The book is divided into seven regions, and sites are listed under county, district, or municipality. Entries contain instructions on how to reach sites, descriptions of the major landscape and habitat features, information about typical as well as important or unusual animals and plants to be found at the site, and an address to contact for more information. Introductory chapters give an overview of Ontario's natural history and its rich and diverse plant and animal life. The book also discusses environmental concerns, offers tips on how to get the most out of an outing, and lists the 'top ten' nature sites in Ontario. There are lists of useful addresses and references, a site index, and an extensive glossary.

This volume is a project of the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, whose affiliates and individual members have contributed to the book. A Nature Guide to Ontario, an invaluable reference for all who want to experience and enjoy the best of Ontario's natural areas and wildernesses.

Editorial Reviews

Now Magazine

'A Nature Guide to Ontario represents one of the glories [of university press publishing.'

— Ted Mumford

The Cardinal

'This guide is impressive evidence of the hard work and expertise of hundreds of contributors, representing many conservation and environmental associations as well as individuals. But the accolades for the excellent reference book must ultimately go to the editors, and especially to Winifred Wake, who has done a magnificent job on an extremely ambitious but much-needed task.'

— Pat and Kee Dewdney

Picton Gazette

'No roving naturalist in Ontario should be without this guide.'
