Here is encouraging news and even more of a reason to document and photograph what you find out in your favourite areas!
An no I am not against turbines but many of these and other "green" energy projects are on crown or public lands that these corporations pick up of a song.

Just because we find these areas very pretty, that won't save your favourite falls or river.
We are all out there with cameras so it is very easy for us to record what is there.

So catalogue and mark your findings, no need to post but if you do find rare or interesting species let a body like Bird Studies Canada (or similar other critter sites) It is very easy to get the Lat/Long from google earth.
If it is in a P.P. you can let them know too, but when it comes down to a fight to save an area or river staff may be gagged from helping too much, so it is important that these other groups know. ... voked.html

Rented a place there on the edge of the wildlife refuge along the coast from Point Traverse to Point Petre during the early 80s while with MNR... never saw any Blanding's turtles but there are ponds in bays closed off by shingle beach baymouth bars where warm water would probably form good habitat. Shingle beaches have disappeared from the Toronto area so may be a good indicator of what large areas of Toronto shorelines used to look like in the old days.

Sandbanks PP would be crowded with hundreds of campers and swimmers during the summer, but Point Traverse desolate and empty, at least at that time, don't know how many people have discovered it since then. Hotspot for raptors and monarch butterflies during migration, bring binoculars.
