The 3-part documentary series 'The Land Between' explores Kawartha Lakes’ very unique ecosystem; Saturdays this summer at the Fenelon Museum.
Starting this Saturday, July 14, Maryboro Lodge - The Fenelon Museum is proudly presenting the landmark series The Land Between, a visually stunning 3-part documentary that deep-dives into the special and unique region that envelopes The Kawartha Lakes. Join us each week for a one-hour episode, screened inside the gallery theatre in Maryboro Lodge - The Fenelon Museum and stay for an informal but illuminating discussion on a wide range of topics, focused on our local environment, heritage, and history.
“The series uses aerial and time-lapse videography, historical re-enactments, animation and hundreds of rare photographs and films to introduce you to this space between the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands, home to a host of overlapping species from the north and the south, and the ever-changing story of how humans have interacted with this special region throughout time.” - TVO

About The Land Between region: The Land Between extends from the Georgian Bay Coast to the Ottawa Valley. It is the final frontier; the last wilderness in Southern Ontario. This region provides clean water to cities downstream, shelter from climate change effects, and ecosystem services benefiting all of Ontario. It’s a refuge for wildlife; home to loons, bear, moose, deer, and more hummingbirds, stars, shores, snakes and turtles than anywhere in Ontario. But it is a fragile place; untended development and pollution here affects all of Ontario and the damage is hard to reverse.
About The Land Between Organization: The Land Between charity is a grassroots non-government organization, and the first and only group representing the region.
