The 30 minutes you spend outside could be anything you want! From going for a run to just sitting out and listening to nature. There are so many great ways to enjoy and experience the nature in Ontario’s Lake Country! Here are some ways Ontario’s Lake Country can help you complete the 30×30 nature challenge this summer!

Going to a beach or park is a great way to spend some time in nature! Couchiching Beach Park in Orillia gives endless opportunities for you to spend some time reading a book, doing some art, listening to nature or even having a picnic with friends or family at one of the picnic tables!

Ontario’s Lake Country also has some great Provincial parks such as Mara Provincial Park, Bass Lake Provincial Park and more that offer so many opportunities to spend time enjoying nature!

Paddling through the waterways and enjoying the amazing scenery through the region is another great way to enjoy nature for 30 minutes each day!
