We provide public programs and interpretive resources in many parks.
- Join a park interpreter on a guided nature walk.
- Come to a hilarious high-energy amphitheatre show.
- Enjoy a fun, hands-on learning experience for the whole family.
- Chat with a park interpreter one-on-one at select trailheads and day use areas, as well as visitor centres.
- Pick up informative brochures and explore interactive exhibits at our visitor centres.
- Self-guided interpretive trails are available in some locations - enjoy these trails of discovery with fascinating stories about plants, animals and local history. Search for "Interpretive" in the Trails listing. You can also check in the "trails" section for a specific park (located under the Information & Facilities tab.)
Our public programs are informal and fun. Interpretation:
- is an innovative teaching technique that combines facts with stimulating explanatory information;
- reveals the meanings of and relationships between natural, cultural, historical and recreational resources; and
- is a profession with highly trained staff dedicated to environmental education.
Check our Events Calendar to see upcoming events at parks across the province.
Some public programs are first come-first served and free, while some require prebooking and have a fee. Check scheduling, fee and booking details on the link for each program in the Events Calendar.
At some parks, it is possible to arrange an interpretive program for a group of people of any age. To enquire, contact the park you are interested in well in advance.
