Our top August photos remind me of the iconic symbols of the Kawarthas: sunsets, sunrises, loons, pristine camping locations, still water, canoes, and paddling.

In this pandemic year when our natural areas have not always been respected, it’s encouraging to know that many people still honour and respect them.

Most of our Instagram followers have connections to the Kawarthas. Some live here year round, some are regular camping trippers, some are cottagers and visitors, and others are far away and missing home.

Whatever your connection to the Kawarthas is, thank you for following us and celebrating the Kawarthas with us every day. Keep tagging us at #kawarthanow!
