Laurier Woods is a neat, easily accessible area in our town. Trails wind through maple and birch bush and beside wetland ponds kept full by beaver dams.
Forest Bathing combined with exercise and wildlife observation can be practiced by people of all ages.
A treat for the body and mind.
Recently I ambled along the trails and made photographs of whatever interested me.
These are a few of many that I made.

Spring comes to Laurier Woods.
I’m just discovering Laurier Woods. It is a marvellous place.
Easily accessible, popular with birders and walkers (alone and with children and/or pets), the opportunity of get out in the bush and experience the joy is one of the neat things about living in North Bay.
Little things like this birch group present themselves around every corner.
A true gem.
Winter has bleached the bullrushes to brown.
Laurier Woods exists because forward thinking people have banded together to preserve this oasis in the middle of the city. Small improvements such as this walkway make it accessable to everyone.
