What to bring

The great thing about guided walks is you just need to bring yourself, a pair of shoes, and your curiosity

Meet your guide Tara

Tara is one of those people you find sharing knowledge of the natural world at unsuspecting times and who has a natural curiosity about the Earth. It was a childhood in the beauty of the 1000 Islands and Frontenac Provincial Park that sparked Tara's love for rocks and water and which flamed her desire for environmental knowledge to answer why things are the way they are. This desire led her to a career as a hydrogeologist, working with groundwater and geology in research, consulting, and conservation within Ontario. Tara spent 13 years learning about and working in environmental sciences, and is now ready to take what she has absorbed to inspire others within Ontario to reconnect with nature and develop their own undying curiosity for everything environmental.
