*NEW* Species at Risk booklet!

The Muskoka Heritage Foundation is set to release the first in a series of five booklets. The subject of the first booklet is Species at Risk in Parry Sound-Muskoka. It gives information about specific actions we can take to help those species at risk in our area.

The booklets are unique in that they contain Muskoka-specific, action-oriented information. The project will enhance and preserve the environment through the encouragement of adopted stewardship topics. Topics include Forest management options, Shoreline and native plants, Wildlife habitat, Trail building, and Species at Risk. They will contain action-oriented tips and best practices for cottagers in Muskoka and elsewhere.
