Pine Marten with snowy nose

December’s digital download

Don’t stay inside pining for warmer weather!

There’s tons of things to do (and wildlife to see) while visiting parks in the winter! Check out our Visiting in Winter page for more info!

This month’s FREE digital download features a Pine Marten spotted at Algonquin Provincial Park.

The elusive Pine Marten is a captivating predator in Ontario’s northern forests.

In preparation for winter, they grow fur between the pads of their toes, creating a snowshoe effect that allows them to walk on deep snow. The solitary, agile Pine Marten expertly navigates in the winter months, diving underneath snow to hunt in tunnels made by Red Squirrels.

Captivated by the Pine Marten? It’s one of the four winter animals featured in our greeting card set!
