Deepening Cultural Connections
Our goal is to acknowledge, respect, and celebrate First Nations’ traditions, culture and communities in parks.
As resources becomes available, we work with a range of partners and volunteers on projects including
First Nations communities showcasing their heritage and cultural practices
First Nations elders and youth connecting around culture, traditions, and traditional ecological knowledge
Aboriginal guardians and student rangers assisting in park stewardship
Exploring aboriginal ecotourism opportunities.

I can't conceive of anything being more varied, rich and handsome than planet earth; its crowning beauty is the natural world. I want to soak it up, to understand it ... then put it together and express it in my painting. This is the way I want to dedicate my life.”
