Big Crow Lake, ON


Watermark by Jana Philip

My Watermark is Big Crow Lake, Ontario.

My most powerful memory of this waterbody was the time when I hiked to Big Crow lookout and got to look over the great expand that is the land now called, Algonquin Park.

I was taking youth who usually don't get the chance to canoe trip on trips through Camp Outlook. Some of these youth had never had the chance to see the stars, drink from a fresh water lake or see a land untouched by concrete. I hope that all you children and all people can experience this important connection as it should be a right for everyone.
Watermarks are true stories about you and your connection to a body of water. By archiving your story, you add to a living record of our shared water heritage, protecting these waters for generations to come. So tell us: What is your watermark?

I listened to a pair of bald eagles call out in the middle of a common loon. Symphony while floating in my canoe.
