CPAWS
The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada’s only nationwide charity dedicated solely to the protection of our public land and water, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them. Since 1963 we’ve played a lead role in protecting over half a million square kilometres – an area bigger than the entire Yukon Territory! Our vision is that Canada will protect at least half of our public land and water so that future generations can benefit from Canada’s irreplaceable wilderness

Quotes
Communities don’t care how much you know, they care about how much “YOU CARE.” A secret to community engagement, be sincere, be honest, caring and follow through.

Gros Morne National Park
Western Newfoundland: Gros Morne National Park is like the Galapagos of geology – you might go to the Galapagos to experience first-hand the wonder of biology and the theory of evolution. In Gros Morne, you can experience first-hand the wonder of geology and the theory of plate tectonics.
