Hello! Bonjour! My name is Parka and I invite you to come celebrate Parks Canada's 100th birthday with me this year!

I was born in Canada’s largest national park – Wood Buffalo National Park – in the world’s largest beaver dam.

I love nature and history, and playing outside all day. My dream is to visit each and every one of the 42 National Parks, 167 National Historic Sites and the 4 National Marine Conservation Areas in Canada. Looking forward to seeing you soon at one of these magnificent places.
