Parka, our mascot

My story and my friends

I like to explore, have fun and discover something new each day! During my many adventures, I have made new friends named Gray Jay and Chirp.

  • Parka's story

    I was born in Wood Buffalo National Park, the largest national park in Canada. It’s also the home of the LONGEST beaver dam in the whole world!
  • One day, my friend Gray Jay came to visit.

    "What shall we do today?"

    I had lots of ideas!

  • "We can look for butterflies, or count all the frogs we see."
  • "We can visit a fort, hear a drum and march like soldiers from long ago."
  • "We can paddle our canoe or we can go swimming in the lake!"
  • "And at night we can sleep in our tent and roast marshmallows by the fire!"

    And that is exactly what we did.
