AbstractTwenty sites between Peterborough, Lake Ontario, and the Ottawa Valley are described in this guide. Set in context by a general introduction to the geomorphic history of the region, they illustrate landscapes created by processes of glacial erosion and deposition during the Pleistocene, and by events that have occurred in the period of about 12 000 years since deglaciation. Sites especially near Lake Ontario also deal with the impact of human activity on the environment. The descriptions are intended for a nonspecialist audience, and directions are provided for road travel to each site.
