The Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve has released the top ten amazing places in our area. From over 50 public nominations of locations in the region, ten Amazing Places have been selected for this year. This summer, visitors and residents in eastern Georgian Bay are encouraged to make this their most amazing summer yet by exploring some very special places. GBBR Project Manager Brittany Mahnke says they are impressed by how many people submitted nominations as some spots were nominated for their geology and other for their fascinating cultural history. Information about each site will be featured on a specific day all summer at www.visitamazingplaces.ca/georgian-bay starting today with the French River Gorge.
