  1. Would be interested in joining you for this, but can’t on that day. Do you do this type of event more than once in a year?

    • Hello Patrick,

      In previous years, there was only one day dedicated to the Research Forum. This year, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the Gatineau Park, we have extended the Research Forum to 3 afternoons, coming Saturday being the last afternoon.

      We also conduct a variety of interpretation activities all through the year, usually taking place on Friday evenings. There is one coming up tomorrow evening on the caves found in the Gatineau Park and the week after, we have an activity called Surviving outside. Pre-registration is required for both activities. Check our website for more details.

      Thanks. ……………. Julien
