Download this month’s FREE digital download, then read up on the history of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, and why it has been on everyone’s destination bucket list for 75 years!
Today’s post comes from Evan McCaul and Steve Kingston, ecologists with Ontario Parks’ Northwest Zone.
Did you know that bats play important roles in our ecosystems and are unique in being the only type of mammals that can truly fly?
All bats in Ontario are nocturnal predators that feed primarily on insects like moths and mosquitoes. There are eight different bat species across Ontario, including three species at risk: the Little Brown Bat, the Northern Long-eared Bat and the Tri-coloured Bat.
Gather friends and family around the picnic table this year and spend Thanksgiving out in nature surrounded by beautiful fall colours!

Today’s post comes from Will Oades, with the Discovery Program staff at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park
As we near the end of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park’s 75th anniversary, it’s hard not to look back on all of the rich natural and cultural history that has shaped the park into the place we know and love today.
Full of world-class hiking, biking and ski trails, Sleeping Giant offers a recreational haven for thrill seekers and amateur adventurers alike.
Fall colours are here, folks! Get outdoors and enjoy the season.
Roofed accommodations, electrical sites, and non-electrical sites are all available to fit your camping needs this weekend.

Hi, I’m Carolyn, and I’m popping in on the Ontario Parks blog to highlight some of my favorite provincial parks that you can visit throughout the fall, which I think is one of the best times to travel in Ontario.
Please read on as we road-trip around Ontario:
For many hikers, fall is peak season for the big challenges. Bugs have fled, temperatures are lower and the autumn leaves are on full display.
If you’re after an exciting new trail this fall, we’ve got three bucket list trips to recommend.
Ready to test your mettle?
We’ve got plenty of campsite vacancies in southern Ontario, with two cabins still available up north.
Today’s post comes from Kyra Santin, a Natural Heritage Education and Marketing Student from our Northwest Zone.
George Santayana — poet, philosopher and naturalist — said, “The Earth has music for those who listen.”
The earth holds a lot of beauty within it. If we open our eyes and ears, and listen to the world that surrounds us, we can truly appreciate the music the earth is making.
It’s the last weekend of July and we say get ready to cast a line. Many of the parks featured this week have excellent fishing just off the shore or get adventurous and try your luck out on the water.
