At the October 22 Volunteer Recognition and Annual General Meeting, Friends’ interpreter Michelle Hegge spoke of the Summer 2011 Interpretive Programs offered to Lac Philippe campers and visitors, in both French and English. On a regular basis, Conservation officer Marc Rousseau offered his ever popular talk
on Gatineau Park’s black bear and local Search and Rescue team members offer well attended Hug- a-Tree program which
teaches people of all ages what to do when lost in the woods. As well, campers enthusiastically joined in our interactive (and very fun!) amphibian programs, learn about birds, beavers, or caves. They tested their knowledge at the Fact or Fiction game show , listened to nature legends and stories at campfires, and took part in a genuine scientific study of Parent Stream in the Adopt- a- River
program. There was also a program on how to prepare for a successful outing in nature – along the way learning some cool
facts about Gatineau Park’s natural heritage. In the International Year celebrating Our Forests, campers learned about the traditional (aboriginal) uses of our regions forests.
