Our Summer 2020 issue had to be a bit smaller, except for the size and number of our main features and columns. They remain the same. Here’s what they are about.
Our cover story shows the magnificent work of birds of prey by Richard Rallon, a photographer who shares technical tips on how to get past the screens and grids of cages, to get fantastic closeup portraits of the wonderful residents of Mountsberg Raptor Centre.
Another gifted photographer, Sylvain Champagne, shares his favourite views of the Bruce Peninsula. The colours, the shapes, the textures, show why this is such a perennial treasure for visitors.
First in the issue, is an experience that Mike Davis had on the waterfront at Burlington and Hamilton, by bike.
A young man named Spencer Lippa is Georgetown’s answer to Greta Thunberg. Jeannine d’Entremont brings us an interview with this climate activist.
There are walking trails at South Baymouth on Manitoulin that people may not realize are available to the public – when stay-at-home orders are lifted. Joe D. Shorthouse takes us on an armchair tour of the trails and their builders.
Bob Barnett’s column explores the challenges of choosing which properties most deserve to be conserved, while I list the healing benefits of having nature to walk in during self isolation.
