Interpretive Events & Guided Experiences

Park interpreters lead guided hikes and historical tours, stage special events, conduct campfire talks, provide family activities and give presentations at amphitheatres. 

Take a guided tour of a marsh or attend a campfire talk to learn about white-tailed deer or water conservation.  Listen for the call of a wolf or enjoy music once sung by voyageurs and bison hunters.  In the winter, trek through the forest on snowshoes or build a quinzhee.  Interpretive events are always free of charge and everyone’s welcome!

Select programs are highlighted below.  Look for event listings in each park for details on upcoming programs.  Be sure to also plan a visit to one of our interpretive centres and museums!
