Immerse In Farming Life At Topsy Farms

Try your hand at agriculture at the most adorable island farm you can find in South Eastern Ontario. There are plenty of workshops to attend including dyeing yarn, planting for bees and butterflies, and shearing. If you are an animal lover, you only need one reason to go – lots and lots of sheep and goats! Sponsor your very own for $75 and make it a habit to go for visits to this calm and serene landscape.

 

Track Down Hidden Treasures

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to find a geocache, a hidden container filled with treasures that another team or person has left behind.  Find the clues and GPS coordinates online and then begin your search. This pastime is quickly gaining popularity in Lennox & Addington with thousands of geo-caches hidden throughout the region. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. Use your smartphones or GPS device and explore and discover places off the beaten path in the beautiful Lennox & Addington.

Stargazing

In Lennox & Addington, you can escape from the haze of artificial city lights and sleep under a canopy of stars. If you’ve ever wondered what the night sky looked like 100 years ago, spend an evening stargazing at the Lennox-Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area.

Professional astronomers have said that the Dark Sky Viewing Area is in the most southerly point in the province, where you can still get a perfect, unimpeded view of the night sky. Stargazers can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights or the nebulae, that make up just a tiny part of our Milky Way Galaxy. You don’t need to bring any professional equipment to enjoy the celestial sights here, though a decent pair of binoculars or a camera is always recommended. If you want to set up your camera or telescope, the tennis-court-sized concrete viewing area is the perfect spot.
