The Twelve Days of Muskoka - Christmas & Holiday Local Gift Guide :: Day 5

We really dig living in Muskoka. The area is home to many beautiful iconic features and creatures that have come to help symbolize Ontario and Canada as we know it. But one of features that we like the most is how inspiring it is to live amongst the many artisans and crafters - that have made this land of rock and water their home - as well the smaller businesses that have come to be part of the personality and character of the Muskoka we have come to know and love. Thus Twelve Days of Muskoka, inspired by Suburban Tourist's Twelve Days of Holiday Gift Giving, is meant to celebrate these people and their businesses as well as introduce you to some new gift giving ideas and remind you of some old favourites.

The Fifth Day of Muskoka Christmas & Holiday Gift Giving Guide

Friends of Algonquin Park
People Who Are Passionate About The Park

You can't really talk about Muskoka without mentioning the world famous Algonquin Provincial Park. And if you dig the park as much as we do, you may want to think about doing some holiday gift shopping that also helps support The Friends of Algonquin Park (FOAP). The FOAP is a non-profit Canadian registered charity that dedicates their resources to the educational and interpretive programs of Algonquin Provincial Park by way of research, the development and delivery of programs, workshops and events, plus they help in the production of educational materials. You can shop online for Algonquin related books, clothes, DVD's and more - or visit one of their book store locations (depending on time of year). Making a donation or purchasing a FOAP membership are also possible present ideas.Visit their website for more information and give a gift or two this year that helps Algonquin Park.

Did you know that Badger Paddles donates to
the annual FOAP Fundraising Raffle along with our
friends Swift Canoe and Algonquin Outfitters too?!
