Episode 7: Saskatchewan Outdoors and Black Tail Prairie DogsAuthored on October 16, 2020
Many of us assume Saskatchewan is a province that features endless prairie plains alternating between native grasses and agricultural crops. That may be the case in a third of the province, but the rest is a unique mix of climate and ecological zones that make Saskatchewan a true outdoor lovers paradise. ON Outdoors with Lawrence Gunther this week Ms. Lilly brings us up to speed on Canada’s only population of Black Tail Prairie Dogs, Dr. Chris Somers from the University of Regina shares with us his favorite outdoor places, and Lawrence demonstrates and describes some of the tools and tech he uses to ice fish blind with his guide dog.

Episode 5: Critters and CampAuthored on October 2, 2020
Ms. Lilly launches yet another defense of one of her favorite critters, which gets Lawrence thinking about all the wild critters people get to experience when visiting the CNIB Lake Joseph Centre located in the heart of Ontario’s famous Muskoka region. To find out what Lake Joe got up to in 2020 Lawrence speaks with the Centre’s General Manager Eugene Chong to get caught up on what’s new, what’s still popular after 60 years of operation, and what’s in the works. Of course, what would a multi-million-dollar outdoor adventure facility for people with low or no vision and the deaf-blind be without a hole bunch of cool low and high tech access solutions to make it all possible.
