July 15 - Canada Parks Day

Pack a picnic lunch and join us on July 15 for a guided hike and family friendly activities at Healey Cabin! 

Canada's Parks Day is an annual event where Canadians participate in fun, educational and family-oriented activities in parks across the country.

This year, CPAWS-OV will celebrate Gatineau Park (and our Make it a Real Park campaign) by guiding a hike beginning at 10:00am from Parking Lot 16 to Healey Cabin. We will learn about the birds, mammals and plants that live in Gatineau Park. At Healey Lodge, we will provide refreshments, games and crafts for the kids.

Canada's Parks Day activities highlight the important role that parks play in maintaining healthy and resilient ecosystems, protecting critical habitat for species-at-risk and contributing to human health and well-being.

Hope you'll join us!
