ALGONQUIN – Algonquin Park is debuting its newest event on Saturday — the Algonquin Wildlife Ski Tour.
The March 2 tour takes place on the Leaf Lake Ski Trail at kilometre 54 on Highway 60, one of Canada’s top cross-country ski networks. Participants can classic or skate ski on either a 6.6- or a 16.6-km loop.
Park naturalists and researchers will be on site for hands-on presentations on winter birds, hibernation, mammal tracking and radio telemetry.
The event costs $10 per person or $25 per family and includes a homemade chili lunch and draw prizes.

Tour the world without leaving town
Seeing the world is as easy as visiting the local public library.
“It’s armchair travelling,” said acting chief librarian Caralene Clement.
The Gravenhurst Public Library finished its spring travel series with a full house on April 30 viewing a presentation on Costa Rica. Because the series was so well attended, the library is planning a second set this fall.
