Wildlife of Kenauk Nature

Why did the turtles cross the road? To lay their eggs!

Did you know that Kenauk is home to 3 distinct turtle species? Many of these turtles prefer to lay their eggs in the soft sand beside our roads, so keep an eye out and you might be lucky enough to see one! You can do your part in conservation by giving these turtles lots of space to take care of their business. That way, the turtles can safely lay their eggs and our guests will be able to enjoy their presence for years and years to come.

Canadian Ski Marathon 2020 Edition

The Canadian Ski Marathon is North America’s longest and oldest cross-country ski tour. Unlike most ski events, there are no winners or losers in the Canadian Ski Marathon: it is not a race. The event offers something for everyone, regardless of age, endurance or ability. Tourers and families who ski less than the full distance make up about half the participants. Each skier can select his/her own level of challenge and try to achieve it. One can ski as little as 12 km or up to the maximum of 160 km over the weekend.

Kenauk Nature is a proud partner of the CSM for another beautiful edition. Join us on February 7th-8th-10th to experience the marathon.
