Flora & Fauna

May has arrived and along with it longer days. The sunrises this time of year are fabulous, with the sunsets not happening until around 8:30pm each night which makes for hours and hours of great hiking to take in around the Bruce.

This is a great time of year to get out and about, with the fiddlehead ferns sprouting and the Marsh Marigolds are blooming along the streams, and the Bruce being home to a wide variety of ferns and rare orchids make sure to take your camera along!

A few places to check out are the Bruce Peninsula National Park, Dorcas Bay (Singing Sands), Red Bay, Petrel Point and the Oliphant Fen.

The Bruce Peninsula Orchid Festival takes place June 1 & 2nd in Tobermory.

Remember protect our plants, never pick, dig or trample, take only photos please.

Share with others; let us know what and where you find unique flora and fauna on the Bruce.
