Midland, Ontario-Tay TownshipWye Marsh is pleased to kick-off our new twelve-month Wye Nature Workshop series with the Wildflower Gardening Workshop hosted by the Wildflower Gardeners.

In addition, you will plant your very own wildflower seed to take home, partake in a guided walk through the Wye Marsh’s garden and we’ll conclude the workshop with a special wildflower tea party.

Cottage Country Dreams Ontario North of Toronto

For many Ontario residents the ideal of owning a cottage is at the forefront of pure leisure time endeavours, be it canoeing, swimming, (Lake Photo: Ogopogo Resort-Haliburton) snowmobiling or lazing by a lake in the summer or a cozy fire (Cottage with fireplace: Hay Lake Lodge and Cottages near Algonquin) in the winter. Future retiree's will say, "I can't wait to have more time to spend at the cottage".

Now is the the time to book your cottage vacation. See the various types of cottages available for vacation rentals north of Toronto.

Ontario Beach Time Just Around the Corner

Ontario is "Beach Country"
As Ontario's lakes melt, summer beaches come to mind and a number of stories are starting to appear about Ontario's beaches. We who live in Ontario know we have some of the best beaches in the world, and close to home or the new "staycation "family will be looking for great Ontario fun beach experiences. Westerners thinking about Ontario as a holiday destination should read "Beach Blanket Ontario" byJoanne Laucius about "Ontario's Great Beaches" . Although the focus is towards the amazing stretch of Wasaga Beach (the longest fresh water beach in the world) along Georigan Bay, there are 100's of Ontario fresh water beaches waiting for family fun, or remote beaches for summer romance and private getaways. Most Ontario resorts have lakefronts with beaches, or access to nearby lakes with sand beaches. See more Ontario beaches.
