New Nature Videos About Frontenac Arch Region

I’ve just wrapped video and production of two new videos filmed in the Frontenac Arch region north of Kingston, Ontario, for the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

These videos are in English and French and are about the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s newest nature reserve in the Frontenac Arch, and the expansion of another nature reserve in the Frontenac Arch.

To film this conservation assignment I hiking into the remote, pristine snow-covered new Blue Lake Nature Reserve, and climbed rocky outcrops in the newly expanded Hawkridge Nature Reserve.

Winter assignments are often a whole different experience and this assignment was no different. The temperature was -15C when I first put on my backpack filled with my filmmaking gear and entered the Hawkridge site at sunrise. By noon the temperature was a more comfortable -5C. Aside from filming in this beautiful location within the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Region, it was exciting to find a trail of a bobcat tracks. Unfortunately it was just the cat’s big tracks but I’m sure the feline was fast asleep somewhere in the towering pines overhead.

The Frontenac Arch

This filmmaking assignment was multi-faceted and included both ground filming and aerial work. Thank goodness for the drone as hiking deeper into forests in winter can be difficult. But I wasn’t complaining. Scenery like this takes your breath away…. in a good way! I was able to get the required work finished at the first site, and travel to another site to hike into a remote lake for the rest of the assignment that I managed to wrap up by sunset. Timing was especially important because in 24 hours a winter storm was forecasted to hit the region.

All of this work is part of a multi-video package for NCC. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Nature Conservancy on numerous projects across Ontario over the past 10 years.

The Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve is situated in southeastern Ontario at the intersection of terrestrial and riverine ecosystems. The area comprises islands and islets of the Saint Lawrence River, which function as important stepping stones for the migration of plants and animals. The Frontenac Arch is an important land bridge linking the habitats of the Algonquin and Adirondack Park regions.
