TIPS ON SEEING MOOSE AND OTHER WILDLIFE
Regular guests will tell you – get up early! Edward will prepare you a thermos of fresh coffee, then make your way by foot down one of our trails, or quietly canoe through the narrows to Lost Joe Lake. By the time the rest of the resort is awake, you will have seen an abundance of wildlife and witnessed a beautiful sunrise!
Stop. Look up and around. Put away your Arowhon cookie bag. Stop checking to see if your cell phone works.
Relax and be still. Concentrate on low-lying, wet areas like ponds, bogs or beaver meadows. Wildlife prefers these areas, and often you will get an open vista or break in the forest for great viewing.
When on a canoe, hug the shoreline to see more wildlife.
Keep a safe distance away when viewing any wildlife. Bring binoculars, especially for bird watching.
Let other guests know what you saw by writing it on our chalkboard on the verandah.
