Just a few short hours from the booming cities of Toronto and Montreal is Thousand Islands National Park. It was established in 1904 and is comprised of 26 islands and 90 islets along the St. Lawrence River. Each island supports its own little ecosystem, ranging from short lichen-covered rocks to thick woodlands. Rare species of reptiles, amphibians, and birds have found a home among these islands. You can explore the bays by taking a relaxing canoe or kayak ride, or by motorboat. For the full experience, you can go island hopping with a guide! They will even supply you with snacks and picnics along the way. For a more relaxing vacation, try glamping in the park — find your home away from home in one of the many cabins located throughout the park. Kick back on an Adirondack (Muskoka) chair on the granite rocks and watch the sunset over the Windswept pines of Thousand Islands National Park.

For me, the park and its thousands of lakes represent and remind me of the importance of water conservation. Lake Opeongo has been my access point to experiencing true wilderness close to home, in understanding the importance of protecting places such as this one and making sure others can continue discovering such natural wonders.
