Celebrate Canada’s Parks Day 2014 On July 19th

 

The 3rd Saturday of July each year is Canada’s Parks Day! This Got Parks link lists activities in a park near you.

Canada’s Parks Day is an annual event where Canadians participate in fun, educational, family-oriented events in parks and Historic Sites across the country. Many activities highlight the important role that parks play in maintaining healthy and resilient ecosystems, protecting critical habitat for species-at-risk and contributing to human health and well-being.
