Parc national de Miguasha: 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!

Local School Activities

Can paleontology be taught to elementary and secondary school students? Of course! Visiting the exhibitions, school groups of first and second cycle elementary school students get special attention from the activity team. Adapted vocabulary, a targeted level of simplification, references to the lives and academic background of the kids and continuous interaction are on the agenda. The objective? That the students, no matter how young they are, have a scientific adventure that awakens them to the importance of conservation while educating them about natural history.

The Geography Program

Are you a high school geography teacher? If so, you’ll definitely be interested in our school program where a park warden visits your class to present the protected territories of the national parks.

Garde-parc en classe
Invite a park warden to your class to introduce your students to the riches of the national parks.

The activity Québec’s National Parks: Protected Territories was developed as part of the school reform, specifically for the first cycle of secondary school courses. Through interactive activities, the students learn why the parks exist, and about the challenges of conservation.
