Exploring the Bonnechere Caves and Learn While Having Fun
-Dave Brown
Rating: ****
            This article, picked from the Ottawa Outdoors Magazine, is a great read for anyone who loves the outdoors, or in this case the underground. If you are curious about the history of the earth or love fossils, caves are surely something one should read up on.
            The article exploring the Bonnechere Caves is an interesting summary of what one could expect to find while visiting prehistoric limestone caves like the Bonnechere Caves. Someone who reads the article will soon realise just how interesting these natural hidden wonders really are, and all the secrets such as the fossilised remnants they contain. The article explains how Tm Woodward bought the caves in 1955. At that time they were flooded, but he blocked off the water with cement, bringing the caves to their present state. Now they are open to the public and anyone who wishes to may explore them with a guide.
            I enjoyed how this article was especially informative and the insight it gave me on something most people know little about. I was amazed to read about how the caves were formed and how you could find fossils that were millions of years old. This article makes me think about how interesting our world is and how much there is to discover if we go looking for it.
            I recommend this article to anyone who is curious and loves to explore so they can learn about the natural wonders that caves are.
