Exhibit of a quilt created in 1985, year of celebrating Parks Canada’s 100 years of heritage conservation
The quilt was made by staff and friends of Canada’s National Parks in 1985, as they were celebrating 100 years of heritage conservation. Individuals and groups in each of the 31 existing parks at the time (there are now 44) were asked to create one square that would represent some aspect of their park. Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks combined their efforts so that the finished quilt had 30 unique pieces. Diane Sock, employee of Kouchibouguac National Park did the layout, centre panel and the Kouchibouguac square. The quilting and final assembly was the work of Laura Babineau of Richibouctou-Village, NB. The quilt toured Canada's National Parks during 1985 to 1987. It reminds us all of the great national treasures Canadians have in their National Park system and to preserve for future generations.
