Natural Areas
Photo by Ian BarkerIn this section, we look at some of the natural areas around the Bay of Quinte region. These will include conservation areas, nature reserves, provincial parks, trails, national wildlife areas and others in our region from Kingston in the east to Cobourg in the west, and north to Highway 7. Many of these include special areas where we have conducted some of our guided hikes over the years. In addition to a description of the areas, we will include maps and directions on how to get there. This is a new category and we will be working on it through the winter as time permits. These natural areas are very special as most have been set aside to preserve the habitat and flora and fauna, as well as the human history. We are very fortunate to have these great areas in our midst, in an era when the importance of preserving remnants of the Quinte area's natural habitat has never been more important. 

The White-winged Scoter is the most abundant of the three species of scoter to appear in our area, arriving as early as late September and gradually increasing in numbers until many hundreds, and even thousands, show up in May as migrating spring arrivals augment the many hundreds that winter in Lake Ontario.
