Spring Springing forth at Algonquin Park

Published By on May 16th, 2007 in Edge Insider

The leaves are budding and the tulips bursting forth at our lakefront home on Kawawaymog Lake (Algonquin Park access #1). The beautiful spring green of the birch trees, the symphony of spring peepers say it’s nearly summer. Fiddleheads (early ferns) popping forth and spring beauties, red trillium, and trout lilies staking out their claim on the forest floor mean it’s almost time to get into Algonquin Park by canoe.
Alexis, one of our adventure retreat guides has already taken his first trip into Algonquin. He got a nice sunny weekend for his short canoe trip – read his blog post detailing the wildlife he encountered.
Natalie and Alix have been hard at work in the turtle shell getting tents, canoes and camping gear organized for the many groups and inviduals who will discover the magic and mystery of Algonquin Park this summer.
If you are travelling up this way in the next month, be extra careful on the roads as wildlife, including moose and deer, bears, rabbits, foxes and more are frequently near roadway before the hot days of summer arrive.
