OSWOA - Landscape

One of the many nice things about living in the Kawarthas is the beauty of the land and the lakes no matter what the season, weather or time of day.

The Snelgrove Brook runs through the back part of the property, it is a part of the Miller Creek system and a haven for wildlife. This wetland habitat is a nesting area for many species of waterfowl, and houses two beaver dams. The 60 plus acres of forest is home to a small wolf pack, deer and many other smaller animals, wild turkeys, many types of game birds and an unbelievable number of species of birds.

On the Edge SOLD

In the autumn many migrating birds pass through the area and often spend the night in safety on the Snelgrove Brook.

I do not allow hunting on the property, with the exception of a neighbour who goes deer hunting during one week of the hunting season.

In exchange he keeps my fences posted and helps to keep unwanted trespassers off the property.

Autumn Visitor

Even when the weather is overcast and grey, with rain falling the land has a peaceful beauty all its own.

Often on a still night or after a rain sound carries a fair distance and you can hear the call of the loons on Lake Chemong which is about 2 miles (3.2km) away.
