About this event

About the walk

Your guide Tara will talk to you about wetlands, birds, reptiles, biodiversity, hydrology, and more as you enjoy nature along the K&P trail.

We have selected this section of the K&P trail as it has ponds, rivers, and wetlands all within a short distance. These ecosystems are home to many different birds, reptiles, and mammals that we may get to see along the walk. We cannot guarantee you will see any specific animal as they are living their own lives in this little nature paradise within the city.

The total walking distance will be approximately 2 km (1 km there and 1 km back on the same trail) along a well groomed gravel trail.

This walk is great for families, individuals, and anyone looking to spend some time outside and interested in learning something new. Recommended for individuals over 7 years of age.

Cost

Walking with blue marble learning scene is FREE! We want to ensure that everyone can enjoy nature. That being said, we do appreciate donations as it helps us to continue doing what we are doing and will help to make sure we are able to stick around (we are a new business just launched in 2021).

Donations can be made on our website (www.bluemarblelearningscene.ca/walking-with-blue-marble) or with cash during the walk.

What to bring

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

On this particular walk we do recommend bringing a pair of binoculars if you have any. These aren't required but help bring the wildlife closer to you.

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.
