In the article “The Rise and Fall of the Great Lakes” in the Summer 2021 issue of ON Nature Conor Mihell states that a storm in January 2020 “washed away the century-old Lion’s Head Lighthouse.” The lighthouse that the storm destroyed was not a century old.

Re: A Tree Woven Through Culture Correction: On page 18/19 of the spring 2020 magazine we mistakenly placed a black walnut tree (below) in the article about black ash trees. We have corrected the digital version of the magazine (with the spread above) and regret the error.

In fact, Ontario Parks does not at present have any plans to proceed with Wi-Fi expansion. Paragraph two of the article should read: “It seems Parks Canada […]

The article stated that a land developer mentioned in the article, Geranium Corporation, had not returned calls for comment. This was incorrect. In fact, Geranium and its public relations representative did return the reporter’s calls for comment, although through no fault […]
