Dear Friend 

A lucky Grade 8 class from Saskatchewan has won Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest of the My Parks Pass program. Students in Mrs. Pylatuk’s Grade 8 class from Caronport Elementary School  will spend four days at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site and Cape Breton Highlands National Park this June. We wish them a fantastic trip and congratulate them on a top-notch video submission.

Celebrating Earth Day
This year, staff at Nature Canada celebrated Earth Day by bringing together nature enthusiasts for a day of spring cleaning at our local Important Bird Area – the Lac Deschênes-Ottawa River IBA. Together with volunteers we picked up a surprising array of discarded objects that are harmful to wildlife. We were also lucky to spot a wide range of bird species!

There will be fun for the whole family – nature-themed crafts, games and interpretive walks and displays from local vendors and artists. Bring your friends and family down to Andrew Hayden Park for a day of nature activities and help us celebrate International Migratory Bird Day.
