For the 16th year, the Friends of Gatineau Park and the National Capital Commission (NCC) invite you to the Annual Research in Gatineau Park Forum, on Saturday, January 23.

This year, we are offering a program that combines nature and culture. You will have the opportunity to view presentations by researchers who work in the Park — and learn a little more about its natural and heritage resources.

Ambika Paudel will talk to us about temperate forested wetlands. Jacques Tardival will take us to discover the ruins along Trail 66. With Bill McGee, we will meet the settlers who lived around La Pêche Lake between 1840 and 1960. And André Martel will give a presentation on freshwater molluscs in Gatineau Park and surrounding areas.

This is a unique opportunity to discover fascinating research topics, and engage with experts.

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