KAWARTHA LAKES/SCUGOG: With COVID-19 having limited the amount of time people can spend learning outdoors, Kawartha Conservation is encouraging young people to take part in online learning, or to study nature in their own backyard. “Although, we can’t enjoy being in nature as we normally would, you can still partake in the free online education activities and learning opportunities offered by a number of Conservation Authorities across Ontario,” read a Kawartha Conservation press release. The local conservation authority has a list of activities and online resources offered by Ontario’s conservation authorities on their website, at www.kawarthaconservation.com. Kawartha Conservation encourages people to post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter what they are doing to learn about and appreciate nature at home, and to tag them at @KawarthaConservation or to use the hashtags #KawarthaConservation, #WeAreConservation, and #StepIntoNatureAtHome. The Standard Newspaper also encourages kids and young adults to share their photos of nature activities on The Standard’s Facebook and Twitter pages at www.thestandardnewspaper.ca.
