The National Capital Commission of Canada has the mission and the mandate to build the Capital Region around Ottawa as a source of pride and unity for Canadians. One place the NCC accomplishes its goals is at Gatineau Park in Chelsea Quebec, across the Ottawa River from Ottawa, Canada's capital city. It's February when we explore Gatineau Park. We are exploring the ecologically diverse 363 square kilometer Gatineau Park on snow shoes, with a naturalist guide and a six-year-old junior naturalist.More
World traveler Patricia Lawrence takes listeners on an "audiojourney" to explore the ecologically and socially diverse 363 square kilometer Gatineau Park, located in Chelsea, just across the Ottawa River from the Canadian capital city. Traveling on snowshoes through the February snow that blankets the grounds, Lawrence, a nature guide, and six-year-old "junior naturalist" explore the park’s unique ecosystem, which includes many at-risk plants and animals. History, too, is a subject because, as the naturalist explains, "the story of Gastineau Park is a little bit like the story of Canada."
