Today’s post comes from Roger LaFontaine, park naturalist and passionate blackfly advocate.
Imagine yourself by the side of a beautiful, rocky stream or river in Algonquin Provincial Park.
The idyllic spot for pondering life’s mysteries, like “what does it look like inside a kingfisher’s burrow?” or “do the bioluminescent fungi glow during the day, too?”
As you enjoy your Instagrammable moments streamside, you are surrounded by a hum, vibrations, and the tickle of tiny feet.
It’s like you’re a celebrity, a guest of honour!
You have arrived to one of Algonquin’s newly established Blackfly Protection Zones.
