Nature's Year In the Kawarthas -Adapted from Amazon Canada

Nature's Year in the Kawarthas, a month-by-month descriptive almanac of key Kawartha Lakes natural world events, is available through Amazon Canada.  Nature's Year in the Kawarthas is the result of twenty years of careful observation of natural phenomena in the Peterborough area where he has lived for almost his entire life. Covering all areas of our flora and fauna as well as weather and the night sky, this almanac chronicles mileposts of the passing seasons. From the raucous Spring Peeper chorus of April ... through the sweet scent of milkweed blossoms in July ... and the early-morning mists of September ... to the arrival of the first eagles in December -- all are noted for your interest.
Whether heading out on your next walk or looking up at the stars, Nature's Year provides an  informative guide. For each month, an introductory essay captures the spirit of the season, while an "at a glance" summary lists key natural events occurring. Each category in the natural world -- from birds to the night sky -- is then covered in more detail. Finely detailed drawings complement the text.
