For the 15th year, the Friends of Gatineau Park and the National Capital Commission (NCC) invite the public to the Annual Research in Gatineau Park Forum, organized by the Friends of Gatineau Park, on Saturday, November 16.

This year, the Friends of Gatineau Park invite you to discover heritage and cultural research projects. David Jaclin will update you on his research about attitudes toward nature. Bill McGee will reveal the history of an area around Meech Lake. Michel Lemaire will take you on a (figurative) trip to the Mackenzie King Estate in winter… and we have more in store. The final schedule will be published here, so keep an eye this page!

Light lunch

You’re curious, and you have questions about the past and the cultural impacts of parks and nature? Perfect! In addition to the presentations about fascinating research being conducted in the Park, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss these subjects with the researchers, while enjoying a light lunch.

Language of the presentations

Some presentations will be in English, and some in French. Each will be followed by a bilingual question period.
