Wild for winter in Ontario Parks

Join Janie Robinson for a fun, frosty winter's day at Springwater Provincial Park. This sanctuary for some of Ontario's native wildlife and for nature lovers like me, sees families, cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and even some chalet bunnies sharing this snowy escape near Barrie. A perfect way to spend Family Day Weekend too...
