Kawarthas Northumberland is home to some of Ontario’s best birdwatching destinations. Carden Alvar Provincial Park and Presqu’ile Provincial Park are internationally recognized Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas, and both of these parks rank among the Top 5 spots for birdwatching in Ontario. Over 338 species have been spotted at Presqu’ile Provincial Park alone. The staff and volunteers at Presqu’ile Provincial Park offer annual events geared towards birders, and there’s a new multi-day nature photography experience being offered at the Carden Alvar Provincial Park. Peterborough and the Kawarthas offer a chance to see a huge variety as well, thanks to its “transition zone” geography. Encompassing the rugged Canadian Shield to the north and gentler agricultural lands to the south means the region houses an impressive diversity of species. Curious? Get more info here.
