Annual Research Forum

Discover Gatineau Park, past and present: immerse yourself in history, and explore our cultural relationship with parks and nature!

The Friends of Gatineau Park and the National Capital Commission (NCC) invite the public to the 13th Annual Research Forum, on Saturday, November 18. 

Société historique de la vallée de la Gatineau

Société historique de la vallée de la Gatineau

This year, the Friends invite you to come and discover heritage and cultural research projects. We will have presentations by descendants of two families who lived on and farmed the land many years before the Park was created. They will talk about the lives of their ancestors and how the creation of the Park impacted them. There will also be two presentations on cultural aspects of our relationship with parks and nature. 

A detailed program will be published on the Friends of Gatineau Park website.

Research undertaken in Gatineau Park helps management in planning to ensure the Park’s protection, while at the same time offering a number of recreational activities. It is also the basis for interpretation and education programs presented in collaboration with the Friends of Gatineau Park.
