Parc national de la Gaspésie: A Natural Choice

We hope to share the park’s natural and cultural riches and educate youth about the importance of protected areas. We have therefore developed many school activities, which are available to teachers and their students year-round. Take the time to discover them, and don’t hesitate to contact us.


School Activity on the Parks Network

A park warden will visit your students in class to share his or her enthusiasm about Québec’s national parks, describing their riches, their mission and their history. This is a great chance for young people to find answers to many of their questions, and to reflect on the balance needed between the conservation and accessibility components of the parks’ mission. Québec’s national parks : protected territories (1st cycle of secondary school) (in French only).

Students participating in this activity will receive daily family access to the national park of their choice so they can experience the national parks up close and personal. And the activity is free of charge for the 4th, 7th and 10th classes coming from your school!
