Southern Ontario is one of the most developed areas in Canada. It also has North America's busiest highway - Highway 401. In amongst this largely urban area are six gems in Canada's national park's system:
- Point Pelee National Park,
- Bruce Peninsula National Park,
- Fathom Five National Marine Park,
- Georgian Bay Islands National Park,
- Rouge National Urban Park, and
- Thousand Islands National Park.
These parks not only protect some of the most spectacular wilderness left in this part of the province, but they offer incredible nature experiences — everything from hiking, camping and canoeing to boating, bird watching and swimming. In Southern Ontario's National Parks, N. Glenn Perrett looks at these special places and why nature is important. He then takes the reader on some eco-adventures.
